Pecha Kucha in Amsterdam

Pecha Kucha is a presentation format with 20 slides, each taking 20 seconds. It means something like ‘chit chat’ in Japanese, and was first used in 2003 by Klein-Dytham architects in Tokyo to help young designers present their work and network. At its best, it’s an unhesistating compact torrent of new information.

I first encountered Pecha Kucha at reboot. Though I missed the actual presentations, I recall the participants beaming that it was the highlight of the already thrilling gathering. To give you a sample, here’s Matt Webb, reminding me of the intoxicating James Burke of ‘Connections’ glory, taking us through Sci-Fi he likes. (Thanks Frank)

According to the Dutch Pecha Kucha folks, there’s a session in Amsterdam soon. Here’s a chance to be generous with your knowledge and practice your speed listening.
