here's what I've come up with.

Comments?

*Finally, Pecha Kucha Vancouver has announced their next event! Thursday,
March 26th at the historic Park Theatre on Cambie St.

The event starts at 7:00, but let's meet up before-hand at the Kino Cafe at
6:00 to amass.

The Kino Cafe is almost next door:
3456 Cambie Street
(604) 875-1998
www.kinocafe.ca/

For those not familiar with Pecha Kucha; trusty Wikipedia states the
following:

"Pecha Kucha (ペチャクチャ?) or Pecha Kucha Night is a presentation format in
which (mostly creative) work can be easily, efficiently and informally
shown. It was devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein-Dytham
Architecture (KDa) in Tokyo in 2003 as a place for young designers to meet,
network, and show their work in public. The format has spread virally to
many cities across the world.

Pecha Kucha (usually pronounced in three syllables like "peh-chak-cha")
derives from a Japanese term for the sound of conversation ("chit-chat").

It was started in February 2003 by Klein and Dytham to attract people to
SuperDeluxe, their multi-media experimental event space they had set up in
Roppongi.[1] The idea is to keep presentations concise, the interest level
up and to have many presenters sharing their ideas within the course of one
night. Therefore, the 20x20 Pecha Kucha format was created: each presenter
is allowed a slideshow of 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds. This results
in a total presentation time of 6 minutes 40 seconds on a stage before the
next presenter is up. Each event usually has 14 presenters. Presenters (and
much of the audience) are usually from the design, architecture,
photography, art and creative fields, but recently it has also stretched
over to academia and the business world."

This post is a really good example of how the gmail autopopulate
function can bite you.

I meant IxDAVancouver -- which is our local planning group. Not
IxDADiscuss, which is where it ended up.

You can disregard, or you can all come to Vancouver for our Pecha
Kucha night if you like the sound of the preliminary event
description. We'd love to see you again!

Shaun,

So, are you thinking of having an ixd-oriented Pecha Kucha? we've considered
doing this in Portland Maine - would like to hear how it turns out if that's
your approach.
