Inspirational Coincidences

@ VOL 2 ON OCT 16, 2014

Rachel Mason talks, sings, and strums about the place where art and life, or fiction and reality meet... While doing research for a musical performance and rock opera to get inside the mind of a child killer from the 1930's, she made contact with a man who killed and dismembered a boy in Borough Park. The experience profoundly effected her, and inspired her to write an opera incidentally about a coincidence - two men with the same name Hamilton Fish, died a day apart and their deaths were announced on a single front page. One man was a child-killing sadist, the other a politician from a distinguished political family.

Inc. Magazine Likes PechaKucha

Ever find yourself wondering how you can add more pep to your presentations? Well, Inc. magazine wondered the same thing, in a business setting, and the latest issue includes a great piece that reveals just how practical the PechaKucha "20 images x 20 seconds" format can be, and how some companies are already using it.  Here's what Autodesk CEO Carl Bass had to say about the format: “For a while, I required my staff to present this way,” says Bass, who complains that most speakers think more about how much they have to say than about how much the audience wants to hear. “It makes people crisp,” he says. “It forces them to organize their thinking.” You can read the full article online here.
