Cincinnati Asks: Do You PK?
It's been a few months since the last PechaKucha Night in Cincinnati -- hopefully a new volume is just around the corner -- but we just now found the terrific "Do you PK?" video that city's organizers put together, which includes a few rounds of one of our favorite games: the "PechaKucha" pronunciation game. The short also does a great job of explaining what the event is all about. So time to answer the question: Do you PK?
Short Video from PKN Victoria Vol. 3
Here's a short video sneak peek at last week's PechaKucha Night in Victoria Vol. 3, which had the theme of "Thought for Food." Even better, free food and cocktails were available for all, as organizer Elisa Yon explains. The evening had our best attendance yet. 200 people crammed into the Victoria Event Centre to listen to 13 presenter's talk about burgers, food composting, a new downtown permanent food and produce market, food stylism, food photography, local food entrepreneurs and wood fired ovens made out of cob. We were also able to use the profits from our last two PechaKucha Nights to provide complimentary food and support a local food entrepreuneur, Heather Cunliffe from Cafe Bliss who specializes in raw and organic foods.
PKN Victoria in the News
You may remember when we posted the video from Victoria's recent PechaKucha Night Vol. 3 that the theme for the event was "Thought for Food," and so it's not so surprising to see that EAT magazine covered the event -- you can read the article here.

The Town That JELL-O Built
Dede Taylor's family history was molded, as it were, by a certain gelatinous dessert: JELL-O. In her presentation (at PKN Bozeman Vol. 2) Taylor takes us down the "Jell-O brick road" of her grandfather's involvement with the household name we now associate with Bill Cosby and J-Lo. We see a small industrial village --Le Roy, New York-- become a modern city with golf courses and an airport, all thanks to this everyman's snack. This is yesterday's edition of "Presentation of the Day" and was posted today thanks to the January 14th national holiday "Seijin no Hi" (or, Coming of Age Day) here in Japan. We took a break from our computer monitors and watched from indoors as Tokyo was covered with beautiful (and yes, freezing-cold) white blankets of snow.
With a name like FabCafe -- and with a location in Tokyo's Shibuya district -- you may think that the "fab" stands for "fabulous," but instead it's short for "fabricate."

Toshimasa believes this technology will change the manufacturing industry, much like the internet changed the way we communicate and share information.
