Our 2012 global event had the goal of celebrating every PechaKucha Night city, worldwide. It was a weeklong celebration (February 20-26) that brought all PechaKucha organizers, presenters, and attendees together, with a focus on highlighting all of the amazing cities that make up the global PechaKucha community.
"Powered by PechaKucha" events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, and that are usually held as part of festivals and conferences, but can also act as standalone events. These events include presentations that use the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format.
Once a year on February 20th — the anniversary of PechaKucha’s founding — we celebrate the proliferation of worldwide creativity, and the amazing interconnectedness of cities from all over. PechaKucha Global Night is a coming together — a time where we recognise that each PechaKucha Night is not alone, but part of something greater. Find a PechaKucha Night in your city and join in the global festivities!

ON DEC 04, 2015
Actor David Duchovny (!) says of Gerard Koeppel's new book: “ I’ve spent most of my life walking the straight lines of the world’s greatest city, and have never thought to ask: Is this a different shape from other cities, and if so, why, and who did it? Koeppel’s book answers these questions, in an easygoing, good-humored manner, with interesting facts unearthed on nearly every page. This is one of those books you always wished would be written, and here it is. Indispensable for anyone interested in the history of New York and cities generally, and bound to fuel cocktail conversations up, down, and across the city for years to come.”
Listen here for a whirlwind history of NY's grid as it develops!
Gerard Koeppel writes history, mostly New York related, but also in anything from magazines and journals to historical signage in city parks. He was also a captain of a charter sailboat, an awful law student, a licensed hack (out of a Greenwich Village taxi garage), and then, for many years, a radio reporter/writer/editor/producer, mostly with CBS News.

Symphonies of the City
From the cacophonous cries of the city springs forth a mellifluous mini-musicale. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Symphonies of the City" from PKN Toronto Vol. 25, designer Marc De Pape is "exploring the relationship between sensing technology and the routines of everyday life." He's created a device that he compares to a windchime: one that not only creates sounds with the wind, but senses audio, motion, direction, temperature, light, and more. Based on the sensory input of the city, the device generates a melodious micro-orchestra of sounds that are not at all displeasing to the ear. Give it a listen on Marc's project page.
