False Positive

BY MARK SHEPARD
@ VOL 15 ON FEB 04, 2016

"Let's get personal."

In False Positive from PechaKucha Night Buffalo Vol. 15, artist, architect and educator Mark Shepard reminds us that it is not just the trust we place in network infrastructure but also our willingness to trade bits of personal data for access to online services that renders us vulnerable. Caught between the ruse and exploit, we find ourselves subject to ever more sophisticated forms of profiling, both online and off. Yet if algorithmically generated data-bodies are our future, they are also prone to error. Sherpard's project FALSE POSITIVE deploys text messaging, stealth infrastructure, street intervention, and data visualization to enact a surveillance conspiracy engaging the public in an intimate, techno-political conversation with the mobile technologies on which they depend.

Twittering Your PKN

These days we're quite used to seeing twittering happen during PechaKucha Night events worldwide, which makes for a fun and quick update on how things are going as the events are actually taking place while attendees tweet on their mobile phones. For last November's PKN Indianapolis Vol. 7, organizers went one step further by setting up a station for anyone to twitter about the event, inviting them to use the #pkindy tag in messages.

People Love the Format!

We often get messages from organizers following their PechaKucha Nights, sometimes as a full report that appears on the blog, or sometimes just a few short words to say that things went well. We did get a kick out of PKN Taos organizer Matthew Thomas message, following last week's PKN Taos Vol. 2: Event #2 was a complete success! Sold out, max capacity and they had to turn people away. PEOPLE LOVE THE FORMAT!

Tips for Presenters

PechaKucha is a special style of presentation that honors short, powerful messages. Having prepared thoroughly, you will confidently deliver a flawless address to a fully-engaged audience. Here are some tips to help you prepare an awesome 20x20 presentation. Choose a topic you are passionate about and tell a story A great way to start your presentation is to tell a compelling story. You may want to start with a personal anecdote or incorporate it into your presentation. Doing this will make your presentation more personal. Take the audience on a journey (albeit a short one) that has an intro, development, and conclusion. Think about how your story will combine with the images you've chosen to create a powerful message. Be sure to share with the audience why your presentation topic is important to you, and why they should care about it too. Create an outline and focus on the maing points you want to makeOnce you settle on the topic, think about the main points you want to make about it. These will likely guide what your images will be. It's suggested that you write down the two key points you want to make for each slide and try to stick to that. What do you want the audience to remember?  If the audience could remember just one thing from your presentation, what would you want that to be? Once decided, your talking points and images will revolve around that theme.Images. Images. Images.Images are the key to an effective PechaKucha talk. Try to find images that are illustrations or metaphors of your key points and / or use words as image. This makes delivery of your presentation much easier, as you’re not trying to race through a list of points. It also makes your presentation more engaging. The images you choose should reinforce your ideas. Make sure your images are high quality and that you have permission to use them.Hack the format!If you want to go into depth on one particular slide and 20 seconds just won’t be enough, repeat the slide and add text or graphics to develop your points. Your information will then be on screen for 40 seconds, with small changes appearing midway through. This is a very graceful way to keep within the format but still go into depth.Practice. Practice. Practice. Practice delivering your presentation until it flows easily. Practice really makes the difference and it is okay to have notes. The best way to stave off nerves and build confidence for speaking in front of a group is to practice your presentation several times. I encourage speakers to practice short pieces like this at least 10 times. Having many rehearsals under your belt will allow you to be comfortable and have fun during your presentation!

Pensacola News Journal Moon: PechaKucha, Mardi Gras and a guy who hates celebrations By Troy Moon Christmas is over. The New Year is already a few days old.  The long holiday party is over and now it's back to the grind and — hold that thought. ... But look, I know most people aren't the party-Scrooge I am. I'd feel silly in a pirate costume, but that's just me. I know normal people have a good time, and more party-power to them. Rock on! Which reminds me, I have to go out in public on Saturday night and give a presentation. The theme is "Celebrate." Whoopee. Maybe I should just recite this column.    Read more at: https://www.pnj.com/story/news/2018/01/03/moon-pechakucha-mardi-gras-and-guy-who-hates-celebrations/996661001/
