Kyoto just recently held its fourth PechaKucha Night, and from what organizer Sally McLaren tells us, they've been attracting a larger audience with each volume, and it may finally be time to change venues (although we quite like the coziness of UrbanGuild).

Reviving Urban Environments, the Mysteries of the Teutonic Knights, and Outside in Cancun

Presentations Payam Shalchian and Jamie Black, two alumni from the Institute Without Boundaries, talk (at PKN Toronto Vol. 13) about the significance of collective action in reviving urbanized environments. They use Lota, a project in Chile, as a case study, reflecting on the project's outcome in relation to various aspects of Toronto. Marek Czechowski is a traveler and researcher, and in his presentation (in Polish, from PKN Koszalin Vol. 7) he talks about the real history of the teutonic knights, who during the 13th century ruled the North of Poland. This is however a history that doesn't follow any school books or academic sources. This story reveals the very truth about the knights, who, according to Marek, were not able to build their famous brick castles themselves... Gaining spontaneous applause, Marek proves they had no necessary knowledge to do this, and that they had insufficient money, as well as insufficient building materials. Posters We have two new posters on our Tumblr blog today: a flyer for PKN Kyoto Vol. 7, and then one from Nantes (pictured above), for the city's upcoming PKN Vol. 3 (set for June 19).

Anamorphic Lens Love, an Unusual Flat in Florence, and Ottawa Panoramic

Presentations What's an anamorphic lens? Find out in this presentation (from PKN Cork Vol. 1) by Mike Hannon, as he talks about his love of this photography accessory, leaving you with the following thought: How can something so geeky be so entertaining? In this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Pisa Vol. 1), Juri Favilli covers an architectural renovation project for a flat in the middle of Florence's old town. The concept was to have new living areas in which most of the home's functions were placed in the walls. You end up with a living space with almost no furniture, which answered the client's request of wanting an "ordered home." Posters There are no new additions to the Tumblr blog today, so we'll highlight (above) yesterday's PKN Kyoto Vol. 7 flyer -- the event takes place this coming Sunday (June 17). Photos Above, a first look -- and a panoramic one at that -- at the scene for last night's PKN Ottawa Vol. 5, about 30 minutes before the start.

BitSummit MMXIV

From the minute the lights came up at the end of the inaugural BitSummit—a humble but ultimately successful effort—we immediately took the enthusiasm and feedback and support gathered from the first event and set our sights on creating an even better follow-up for 2014. Many of the indie teams who joined us for BitSummit MMXIII have already experienced exciting new levels of collaboration and success over the past year. Simply speaking, BitSummit is having an effect, and we want to build on that momentum. For BitSummit MMXIV (March 7-9) we’ve expanded the size, the length, and the quality, with three days worth of guest speakers and musical guests, combined together in an event unlike anything ever seen.
