Watch Your Energy Usage, Take Up Politics, and Enjoy Some Green Urban Environments
Presentations Small changes in our lifestyle can have a rather large impact on energy consumption. In "Human Habitat: The Evolution of Efficiency" (from PKN Bozeman Vol. 2), Chris Dorsi goes through the KWH usage of various countries, to illustrate our energy-heavy habits and raise awareness. How important are politics to you? In "All Colors Together" (in Portuguese, from PKN Curitiba Vol. 1), Renan Molin hopes to show everyone how important it is to participate in the world of politics, and uses the Obama campaign as a point of reference. Terapia Urbana is a technology-based company in Seville that uses nature to solve energy problems caused by buildings in cities where greenery is far from abundant. "More Green in the City" (in Spanish, from PKN Seville Vol. 12) includes a few of their projects, and you'll be introduced to a few vertical gardens -- for both the outside and interior of buildings -- as well as other "green" innovations. Posters Quite a few additions to our Tumblr blog today, including posters/flyers for PKN Williamsburg Vol. 1, PKN Ornskoldsvik Vol. 1, PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 3 (above), and PKN Vancouver Vol. 22. Photos Here are today's photo galleries, as well as a fun teaser video for PKN Barcelona Vol. 16, which took place this past Friday. The photo above is from the PKN Vienna gallery.

Last Saturday, January 28, PechaKucha Night Philadelphia took its show on the road, driving two hours north to mount the first PechaKucha Night in the city of Scranton. I thought the event went well for a city's first show: we had eight presenters who spoke to a standing-room-only house of 60 or so. Here's the story: A few months ago, as I was planning a weekend getaway with my brother, a thought occurred: why not plant a PechaKucha seed in a new city? I had already settled on a destination: Scranton, Pennsylvania, once a powerhouse industrial city, now home to a more diversified economy that includes several colleges and design shops. Sitting atop vast deposits of coal and iron ore, the city was the first in the United States to produce iron railroad rails, and the first to build electrically powered trolleys -- lending it the nickname the Electric City. Today, Scranton remains the sixth-largest city in the state of Pennsylvania. The next step was to seek help on the ground. I googled "Scranton and PechaKucha," and made contact with a librarian at the University of Scranton who had once delivered a 20x20 talk at a conference. She wasn't available to speak, but she helped me find a venue (the Vintage Theater and Cafe) and a co-organizer, Mandy Boyle, who works at one of Scranton's web design firms. Together, we rounded up a slate of eight speakers. In early January, we reached out to local media, and hit the jackpot. The Weekender, the leading local arts & entertainment weekly newspaper, put the upcoming PechaKucha Night on its cover. The piece, "What would you say in six minutes and 40 seconds?" came out on Wednesday, January 25. The following day, Scranton's daily newspaper, the Times-Tribune, ran a similar story: "High-speed PowerPoint presentations engage at Vintage Theater's PechaKucha Night." Armed with as much publicity as we could have hoped for, we opened the doors at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 28. People started streaming in, and by showtime, we had about 60 packed into the cafe. This was the lineup: “Life Lessons from the Gateway Cinema” by Mandy Boyle, SEO team lead at Solid Cactus “How to Slow Down Time” by “Welcome To Scranton” author Greg Halpin "#ScrantonMovieNames” by Michelle Davies, an NEPAblogs.org co-contributor “Stained Glass & the Passing of an Old World Art” by NEPAblogs.org founder Harold Jenkins “Restoring the Slope” by Leadership Lackawanna Class of 2012 member Gerard M. Hetman “Library Crimes & Misdemeanors” by newspaper librarian Brian Fulton “In Pursuit of the Light” by professional photographer Brent Pennington “Preparing America to Compete in the 21st-Century Global Economy” by technology trainer Michael J. Murphy The show itself went off well. I was quite proud of the presenters, all of whom did a fine job -- especially given that none of them had even ever seen a PechaKucha presentation before. Everyone at the cafe seemed to have a good time, and there were plenty of people afterward who asked about presenting at a future PKN. The day after the show, the Times-Tribune ran yet another story: "Scranton takes on global phenomenon with slideshow event." Links A few interesting posts and event reports from around the web. "Cultural Chit-Chat: Armenian and Turkish artists share ideas at joint Pecha Kucha in Istanbul" [Armenia Now] "Armenians, Turks hold Pecha Kucha Night in Istanbul (PHOTOS)" [News AM] "PechaKucha VI: 'Ladies, Pick Your Bull Carefully'” [Rivard Report] "PechaKucha: Speed Dating for Presenters" [The Better Presenter] Calendar After last week's very packed calendar, we're starting out slow this week, with PKN Calgary Vol. 12 tonight (May 28) and PKN Saint-Etienne Vol. 9 tomorrow night.

He is an electric engineer, free energy researcher and entrepreneur. He has been developing an open source technology, which will make Free Energy available for everybody very soon at very little cost. He believes that free energy is the key to true freedom of humanity.
The Orchestra in Transition
“In order to survive the orchestra needs to search for a balance between artistic tradition and economic reason.” Director General and Artistic Director for the South Netherlands Philharmonic Stefan Rosu knows that the classical symphony orchestra is facing dramatic change in recent years. In “The Orchestra in Transition” from PKN Maastricht Vol. 23, Stefan shows us that orchestras must adapt to survive, and he goes into depth on how it can do so without losing its essence in the process.
Our Treasured Non-Moments
“These little non-moments you think are nothing mean a lot to me.” Every time photographer Connie Tsang returns to her hometown to see her parents she’d get a bit sad — her parents were rapidly changing. In “Our Treasured Non-Moments” from PKN Tokyo Vol. 121, she speaks about the seemingly dull yet vibrant moments she captures of her parents as they transition from busily running their family restaurant, to easing into retirement, to slowly ageing before her eyes.
“I had a dream I was in Japan. Next day I bought a ticket to the country. Talk about following your dreams.” Fitri Ali tells us how he travels solo in search of ‘it’. In “Transition” from PKN Bandar Seri Begawan Vol. 1, Fitri conveys that — much to his surprise and delight — rather than discovering himself, he found some amazing people that have in essence contributed to his being.
