"'Business-speak' is used to alienate us and I believe language should be used to unite us, and here are 18 words to help."
Business speak got you confused? Turn the tables with these 18 words born on the corporate front lines. In Jargon for the Rest of Us from PechaKucha Night San Francisco Vol. 62, writer for Google brand studio, Jason Bice shares some clever words to get us all out of a pinch and bring us together with a chuckle. Jason's been a waiter, an art dealer, a stand-up comic, and is currently trying his hand at being a dad.

Mark Dytham Interviewed
Me Design magazine interviewed PechaKucha Night co-founder Mark Dytham, and even though most of the piece covers the architectural side of his life, you can bet that PKN is brought up as well. You can read the full interview online, but here's one section that deals specifically with PKN, including how it all started: At Super Deluxe we didn’t have enough events, we decided all 6 directors should take a night a week to try to make an event. We decided to take an event we have in our office every couple of months, invite some folks around, have some canapés and show some slides like most offices do I think. If we take that to Super Deluxe and we invite other people, we need about a hundred people eating and drinking to make Super Deluxe tick over for one night. So invite twenty people and they each bring five friends, that’s a hundred folks. But if they’re all like me they’ll talk and talk, that would be sad and would go on all night. So 20 slides, 20 seconds a slide, 20 people, and it opened the 20th of February, starting at 20 past eight, we wrapped the whole thing up in about 20 minutes it was nothing other than that, no other big plan and it was a way to keep Super Deluxe going. We opened the first night with about 100 people and next week will be our fiftieth event in Tokyo and we still get over 300 people. We never thought it would last for 50 events, and we never thought this event would happen in 107 countries. There was no business plan for that at all. We never asked anyone to run an event, we never sent out any press releases. People ask us, as was the case with design week in Tokyo, Icon magazine took it back to London, somebody took it to San Francisco, Artrid was speaking in Bern in Switzerland: somebody took it there, and off this thing went. We created a monster we are trying to control now. We will pop over to the upcoming event at the Salone Del Mobile in Milan. It’s quite insane. We have a new website and are setting up a foundation as we are sponsoring the whole event right now: funding the website and staff to look after it. So we are setting up a foundation which will be in place soon and are trying to use the network we’ve got in a really interesting way to connect people together. Any money we raise with the foundation we want to give back to the presenters, for social projects in their cities. Yeah it is nuts…but we are still architects, ok!
The Official Flyer for PKN Barcelona Vol. 7
When we recently posted a flyer for the upcoming PechaKucha Night in Barcelona Vol. 7 (November 27), we thought it was the official one, but instead it was a flyer created by one of the presenters, Raquel Calvo. The real flyer is pictured above, and note the start time of 21:30, which was incorrect on the previous flyer.
PKN Athens Vol. 3
Athens is getting set to host its third PechaKucha Night, happening March 5 at Interni. The event will also do its part in raising funds for the reconstruction efforts in Haiti with the sale of buttons. Here's more from the organizing team: There is something elso too. The PKN team of Athens is actively trying to contribute to the PechaKucha for Haiti initiative and invites the PechaKucha Athens audience to participate in this effort. Collectible buttons designed exclusively for PKN Athens by the creative offices of Design Walk, are going to be on sale during the event of 5th March. All proceeds from this sale will go to the foundation of Architecture for Humanity currently helping to rebuild Haiti. And here's a look at the button designs.
The Power of PechaKucha
We hand over the controls to PechaKucha Night in Gothenburg organizer Jesper Larsson -- his Vol. 24 event was held just last night -- who talks about the perks of being a PKN organizer. As a PechaKucha organizer you sometimes ask yourself if it's worth all those hours you put in. But then you go on vacation to Central America and find out you have PechaKucha colleagues in every other city. Take this example with Panama City. I went there by myself and only knew about two places in town, the place I was staying at and the offices of TBWA / Panama, the local producers of PechaKucha Night. From left: Jesper Larsson (PechaKucha Night in Göteborg) and Ricardo Fernández (PechaKucha Night in Panama City). Words of wisdom at the TBWA / Panama office. I had a great time hanging out with local PechaKucha organizers Ricardo Fernández and Juan Cruz Soares Gache. As an organizer I highly recommend you use the power of a 385 city strong network -- what company can compete with that? -- and contact the local organizers of PechaKucha when you are out traveling. It's a great way to get local tips and recommendations, and a chance to discuss and share PKN experiences. While still traveling I also found out that I had been listed as an up-and-comer when Gothenburg's biggest daily newspaper listed "The 100 most influential people in town," simple because of the success of PechaKucha here. The power is there. Let's just not forget that it's there because we all put in all those hours.
Photos from PKN Sacramento Vol. 19
Today we have another gallery from the exciting PKN Sacramento Vol. 19 event. PKN Sacramento organizer extraordinaire Claire Obenson had this to say about the evening: As always, Pecha Kucha Night was fantastic, probably the best we have had in years. [It] took place during Sacramento's first ever Architecture Festival. The event was sponsored by the AIA and the theme for the evening was "Sacramento Residential Architecture". The outdoor event began with some techno/hip-hop tunes by our DJ, Will Rodriguez (who also happens to be Creative Director for Sacramento Fashion Week). Photographer Sonia Hidalgo, proved to be a natural when she brought the audience to life with her jokes as she introduced each of the presenters. There were 7 presenters, all of them architects. It began with Poet Shawn Pitard who eloquently presented for Joel Swift. Next, we had the fantastic Kiel Schmidt, Fresno's PK Night City Organizer. He was followed by the lovely husband and wife team of Pam Whitehead and Paul of Sage Architecture. Then Maria Ogrydziak (AIA Central Valley President) showed her sophisticated houses. Virtual Design Experts Laura and Justin Wood brought down the house with their astonishingly creative works and finally, Design Principal of Dreyfuss and Blackford Architects -- AIA Central Valley's 2013 Firm of the Year -- Jason Silva closed the show with a really cool residential project. The evening ended with a Meet and Greet held in the offices of The HLA Group, a Landscape Architecture Firm inside the adjacent building. Overall, it was stupendous!
Presenter: Ilya Kuzubov // the Creator of Taibola festival Thereis quite a great amount of open-airs in Russia nowadays, but mostly they have entertaining and commercial character. In 2012 we decided to create a new project – “Taibola” festival. This project has volunteer and ideological character, where the aims which will be achieved by means of entertainment and involvement are following: To increase the interest of the citizens of Arkhangelsk Region to the culture and nature of their native land, as well as to make it more attractive for tourists. To tell the participants and guests of the festival that self-organization and mutual aid is not a myth. Everyone can author, discover one’s new abilities and organize one’s personal cultural recreation. To increase the level of ecological responsibility of the citizens by means of master-classes, lectures and explanatory works. In addition “Taibola” is an advocacy of healthy life style, a chance to learn handwork (this craft is especially valuable in time of offices and digital technology), a way to gain knowledge, an activator of personal growth and socio-cultural activity of participants. Objects of art made of sinker serve as one of the main peculiarities of the festival. Such wooden “sculptures” will underline natural beauty of the summer seashore of the White Sea. The festival program is based on several music-areas, cinema-area, master-classes which will be delivered simultaneously, festival tearoom (chill-out), trade fair (hand-made, souvenirs, etc.); outdoor games, intellectual games and street performances will also be organized there. Taibola is a path through taiga and also a neglected road in Arkhangelsk province. Metaphorically is it the way to inside of oneself and it will be in the open air on the seashore of the White Sea. We position “Taibola” as family all-age measures with free admission and abundantcultural program. As soon as guests leave, equipment and guests of another towns are sent back, the dismantling of utility structures will be started and as the result there will be only objects of art left on the seashore. At the same time the cleaning of festival territory will be commenced. Garbage will be gathered, sorted and removed by force of the festival. Offical site: http://taibola.ru

Dancing in the Office
"For me, dancers represent freedom, while salarymen represent something opposite. I like to create this interaction". In Dancing in the Office from PKN Tokyo Vol. 136, photographer Yulia Skogoreva found herself on an interesting and unexpected path that took her from linguistics, to dance, to photography. In her latest project she juxtaposes two completely opposite elements of society, busy salarymen and dancers, and the results are delightful. Have a look!
