How to Launch a Rocket from Your Smart Phone

@ VOL 16 ON FEB 18, 2016

“They had state of the art technology… [but] an inability to communicate is what jeopardised their mission.”

In “How to Launch a Rocket From Your Smartphone” from PechaKucha Night Madison (Wisconson)’s 16th volume, speaker Spencer Smith debates an urban myth many know well. You may have heard that the smartphone you own is more powerful than the computers that put men on the moon. Do you think that's really true? Is raw computer power the most important component of this question? Once you hear the data from speaker, you could have a different opinion.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, March 8th, 2016.

Smart.Map has been developed on behalf of Expo 2015 S.p.A. and in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Milan, within the two-year project Alta Scuola Politecnica. It is based on using technology as a proactive system to implement the meaning of a territory and to build and strengthen connections among local actors, physical places,

citizens and tourists. The objective is the enhancement of the main characters of a specific city and its metropolitan area, through thematic itineraries and the creation of a network of local businesses under a common brand. This provides an immersive, customized, interactive and social experience of the urban environment, as well as a usercontext direct interaction. Smart.Map has an inclusive approach towards all the major actors of the considered territory (PA, possibily existing agricultural districts, the major producers of agro-food products, local associations, tourists and citizens), towards whom it interacts through a smartphone app and a web platform providing dynamic customized itineraries with gps navigation, e-commerce services and real-time data management.

Condividi L’arte

@ VOL 9 ON JUN 05, 2014

10 years after the foudation of Musei di Strada Nuova, Palazzo Rosso gives his visitors a free wi-fi connection. Musei di Strada Nuova are now asking to all visitors to take pictures inside and share them on the social media. The project Condividi l’Arte wants to communcate this new aproach: it will be allowed to take pictures of the buildings and their inner treasure. The Major of Genoa, Marco Doria, took his own selfie and he shared on twitter with #selfiealmuseo. This hashtag was used from teens of people to share selfie. Utopia Pirata, the creator and owner of this idea in Genoa, is now looking for other Museum involvement to share arts and to make culture social.

Volume 19 Presenters Announced

Spam, aerial acrobatics and the Gallatin Roller Girlz take center stage at the Ellen for PK Night  Spam—both the Internet and meat kinds--gravity-defying acrobatics, and those rough, tough roller girlz will take center stage at the Ellen Theatre for the 19th PechaKucha Night Tuesday, April 19 and Wednesday, April 20. Randall Russo will present “ Glorious Spam”;  Kelsey Clark (aka “Mauled Whiskey”) will describe the not-so-sedate life of the “roller girlz” in “Playing Chess While Someone Throws Bricks at Your Head”; and  Galen Eldridge will talk about living the high life in “I’m off to Join the Circus: Aerial Arts for All.” Jenny McCune, mental health therapist, avid bicyclist and quadriplegic for nine years will recount how she found the strength to forge a new life and help others with chronic pain. And, since it’s April, Jeff Milchen will offer  “A Thrilling Discussion of Tax Policy.” In keeping with the eclectic line-up, gay rights activist and MSU senior Alex Paterson will present “Four years a Queer: My MT Experience.” Entrepreneur Ryan Duarte will discuss the development of a remarkable new smartphone app that can detect skin cancer in his presentation, “Freckles”; Wren Kilian will describe a surprisingly simple, but  effective way to improve Montana’s poor record for recycling;  and Kareen Erbe will describe how she  became a  backyard farmer. Finally, Thomas Schieffer will talk about his transition from a high-paying, exciting and very stressful job through his embrace of ancient healing arts and Lissa Barber and Jan Strout will take us on a photographic journey of personal and cultural discovery through Cuba. Local morning television anchor, Broad Comedy star and snowboard instructor Missy O’Malley will emcee the event. All presentations will be featured both nights. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the first presentation starting at 7:20 p.m. Pecha Kucha (peh-chak-cha) offers anyone with a passion or a vision--designers, artists, inventors, architects, adventurers, entrepreneurs—an opportunity to share their ideas with the community during a fast-paced, friendly social get-together. There's just one catch—presenters have only 20 slides x 20 seconds each, a total of 6 minutes, 40 seconds! Pecha Kucha (sounds like chit-chat in Japanese) was created 12 years ago by a Tokyo architectural firm. Events are now held in more than 800 cities around the world.  More information is available on Facebook at pecha-kucha-bozeman or by emailing   You are encouraged to come early to socialize.  There will be a 20-minute intermission. Advance tickets ($7 plus $1 restoration fee) are available online at . Tickets also are available at the box office and at the door for $8 ($5 for students) space permitting.
