On the Media

PechaKuchaNight Pensacola is still on its infancy. Being this coming event our fourth volume, we wrap up a year of trials, learning and networking. With that we learn that above anything else, PKNs is about connecting with people, connecting people and connecting their ideas. Because of that we had the chance to go get to local media and talk more about PKNPNS Vol.4. After talking on the local morning talk show, we were approached by a local entertainment news paper, and we already have more people interested in knowing more about the event than ever before. It's amazing to see the excitement, the support and the engagement of the community. We can't wait for the night of December 12 to see how all this wil unfold, and where the surpassing of the boundaries that have been holding us will take us in the year to come.

Pensacola News Journal: PechaKucha combines chit-chat, learning and beer By Kevin Robinson How much can you learn in seven minutes? A lot, it turns out. On Saturday, local astronomers, artists, educators and historians will share stories, insights and ideas in a series of rapid-fire presentations at an annual event called PechaKucha Night, or PKN, Pensacola.
