The PechaKucha format was discussed in an article found in last week's MetroActive. The article not only goes over the basics of the PK 20x20 format, but also quotes PKN San Jose organizer and ex-PowerPoint developer/designer Ric Bretschneider, and recaps the their latest, Vol. 11, which was held on May 16: The other breath of fresh air was Tracey Ariga.
