Success is a Moving Target

@ VOL 30 ON MAY 11, 2017

Another PKN City Milestone

It feels like it wasn't that long ago that we hit the magic 300 number in the PechaKucha Night worldwide city count -- it was in fact just a few months ago -- and already here we are at 350! Instead of pointing to one city, let's just thank the last few additions -- Ostrava, Orlando, Waterville, Lund, Cork, and Asuncion -- for helping us reach the milestone. At the rate we're going, we may actually reach 400 before year's end.

A History of British Accents, Book Design in Xalapa, and a New Milestone

Presentations It's with great joy that we can say that, with the inclusion today of a presentation from the city of Xalapa, we now have presentations representing 100 different cities on the PechaKucha website -- and we're only a few presentations away from reaching a global count of 500 online presentations. It's always been our goal to share the widest variety of presentations as possible -- and in as many languages and regions as possible -- and it feels like it's something we're achieving day by day. And it won't stop until we manage to get presentations online from every single PechaKucha Night city! Mark Staplehurst is a web designer and developer from England, and in his presentation (from PKN Toronto Vol. 16) he talks about the history of British accents. You'll soon realize how Englishmen are all "branded by the tongue." What can you tell about Mark from his accent? In this presentation (in Spanish, from PKN Xalapa Vol. 8), Álvaro Itzamá takes us on a tour of various book projects he's worked on, each quite different from the other. Posters There's just one addition to the Tumblr blog today, and it takes the form of the poster for the upcoming PKN Bozeman Vol. 4 (on September 12), pictured above -- you'll find more details, including the full list of presenters, on the official event page. Calendar Here are the two events you can catch tonight (September 5): PKN Roanoke Vol. 3 and PKN Trnava Vol. 5. Tomorrow, it's another big Thursday with the following: PKN Barnsley Vol. 5, PKN Dunedin Vol. 15, PKN Svendborg Vol. 2, PKN Singapore Vol. 5, PKN Santiago Vol. 3, and PKN Budapest Vol. 28.
