Berit Hol ging in op alle persoonlijke online advertenties die ze online te zien kreeg. Ze maakte haar 'target identity' zichtbaar, op Instagram en Facebook.

PKN at Interactivity

PechaKucha Night made an appearance in Philadelphia late last month at "Interactivity," the annual conference of the Association of Children's Museums, and from this post over at the Living in Kidcity blog, it sounds like it was good fun. I would definitely support the drinking game suggested at the end of the post -- all in the name of charity! Pictured from left: Jane Werner (CEO of the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh), Jon McEuen (co-organizer of PKN Philadelphia), and Peter Exley (organizer of PKN Chicago).

An International PechaKucha Poster Exhibition

Annette Scheibel, the organizer responsible for PKN Aalborg, along with artist Helena Sokol have collected nearly 300 PechaKucha Night posters from around the world and have begun showing them at a small curated exhibition in their Danish harbor town. Annette has put together a small photo-set of the exhibition, which also allows its visitors to purchase posters whose proceeds will go to the assistance of refugees in Syria (by way of the Jesuit Refugee Service). Syrian organizer Harout Ekmanian (of PKN Aleppo)helped coordinate with Annette to make this effort possible -- a fine example of the PechaKucha family coming together on an international level.

On the example of the stories from his life, Anton spoke about how companies that created the leading Internet-based technologies make people living easier in travel or allow to communicate with society in a very comfortable way.

Time and Interaction

What if the game you were playing lasted longer than you could live? In "Time and Interaction" from PKN Valletta Vol. 3, video game maker, critic, and professor Pippin Barr speaks on the interactive medium of games, and how the concept of time is exhibited within the medium. From games where you must complete a number frenetic tasks lest your character die, to those where your character is sentenced to 100 real-life years in prison (i.e. we will never live to see what happens at the end of his sentence), Pippin demonstrates the power interactivity can have over our thoughts on time.
