Discoveries While Studying Inflammation
Mark Cook discusses a question: Why do chickens grow faster in germfree vs. conventional environments? It was called the billion dollar problem. This investigation led directly or indirectly to discoveries such as a hairball formula for cats, a breath detection of infection for the critically ill, and much more. To date, the billion dollar chicken problem remains unsolved, but the chickens keep pointing to answers in different directions.

PKN Miami in the News
The Miami Herald covered last week's return of PechaKucha Night in Miami -- "Power Point Chats" -- and it uncovers one important piece of information that makes me wish I could have attended: a "beer break" supplied by Grolsch beer.
"Information Retrieval" is the title of an on-going series of works by Geraldine Lau. The art is inspired by maps, plans, and elevations; both contemporary and antique. In her presentation (at PKN Tokyo Vol. 97) we find out how she processes imagery and data to create new works -- be it a drawing, an infographic chart, or an art spoof collage.
Working on page
Right now Im editing and adding information about the events in xalapa.
Unfortunately there were a number of speakers who cancelled for the November PechaKucha. As a result November's event had to be cancelled. But, December is looking great! We have a full line up of speakers for December. Once I know their presentation topics, there will be more information to come. Hope to see you there!
Eugene Khimenko, IT-entrepreneur, in his presentation from PKN Dnipropetrovsk IT::Reality Vol.10, explained what IT-technology is in the broadest sense and dispelled myths and stereotypes about the image and appearance of the modern "IT specialist". Scope of IT-technologies - is a great tool to expand your horizons and to develop opportunities. Everyone knows that who owns the information, owns the world. Practice and constantly updating information with the help of the search engines will definitely lead you to success!
From Flaneur to Panneur
What defines the 21st century individual? In the 19th century, flaneurs leisurely walked the arcades of their cities and saw what they could see. In the 20th century, from high-rise buildings voyuers utilized cameras or binoculars to peer into the lives of others from afar. In "From Flaneur to Panneur" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 110, architect and thinker Antoine Vaxelaire proposes that we, citizens of the new millenium, are panneurs or those who pan the surface of the earth (or in our case, the internet), never going too deep, for information. We stuff our heads like Christmas turkeys with perhaps needless information, always moving forward, never looking back, and remaining always in the now. One has to wonder, is this good, bad, or just ...is?
The Information of Space
“Space is information-rich, and the events that occur therein provide narrative.” Miles Thorogood explores how space provides information and can be interpreted by artists in different ways. In “The Information of Space” from PKN Richmond, BC Vol. 3, we see this concept is the basis behind Audio Metaphor, a company which transforms text into soundscape composition. Miles describes some projects that have been done to create AI systems which mimic animal behaviour.
Hello from Iasi! We have posted a PK tutorial/instructional video for all our future PK presenters and attendees. Have fun!
Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information
"It's a little bit like Google Street View, it's the same idea ...with radiation." From PKN Tokyo’s recent "Powered by PechaKucha: Tohoku 2020: Building a sustainable Post-3/11 Future" Pieter Franken Presents Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information. In our technologically saturated age, it is hypothetically easy to share data instantaneously with others. After the Tohoku Earthquake, Pieter and what would eventually become the Safecast.org Team realized that information about the radiation levels couldn’t be spread as it didin’t exist. After connecting to minds, companies, and volunteers – both in Japan and abroad– an open-source system was developed that could quickly collect, record, and share radiation level information.
