What is PechaKucha?

PechaKucha was invented in Japan in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network and show the work in public. It includes a modern, very fast form of presentation, in which 20 slides or pictures are shown for 20 seconds each – therefore, one presentation lasts for only 6:40 minutes, which is about half the maximum length of a TED-talk. This enhances the chances that people won’t get bored by the so-called “Death by Powerpoint syndrome”.

Meanwhile, PechaKucha Nights are held in over 700 cites around the world. You can check out their website pechakucha.org to get one new video per day – just like with respondoj.com, you learn interesting stuff there in only a short amount of time.
