Pecha Kucha 5.0

This week is chock full of events. In my previous post I mention the Wayfinder Lectures coming up on Thursday, July 23th at Hawaii Public Radio. On Friday, July 24th at the Academy of Arts, Linekona the fifth installment of Pecha Kucha Night will take place. The Pecha Kucha presentation format started in Japan with designers, graphic artists and architects getting together and adopting this short 20 slides, 20 seconds each format. That limited the preso to 6 minutes and 40 seconds. So, if anything bored you, not to worry, it would be over in no time. Pecha Kucha Night (PKN) 4.0 took place in Honolulu last March. I was planning to present but decided instead to capitalize on a trip to SXSW 2009. Now that PKN 5.0 is here, I got no excuses. My presentation is entitled: Top 20 Social Media Geeks. You can guess who might be on the list but for me the hardest part was deciding who to trim from the list. No hints, the big reveal is this Friday. Hope to see you there.
