Pecha Kucha Tuesday March 2

If you missed the benefit for Haiti, there's another chance to see this unique presentation format Tuesday night at Martyr's. Roughly translated from the Japanese as "chit chat," Pecha Kucha was started in Tokyo as a way for architects and designers to share their ideas without overburdening each other with lengthy PowerPoints. The PowerPoint slides are there, but you have to use exactly 20 of them and they have to be timed at 20 seconds each. Bad or good, 400 seconds and its on to the next one. Peter Exley of Architecture is Fun will emcee again and probably reference his obsessions Leeds United (hint: nothing to do with sustainability) and Cheap Trick. See the link at left under Trends Nihon (there's also a new food link for ramen conoisseurs).
