If your not familiar with Pecha Kucha, it's a Japanese word for conversation and as presentation format it limits speakers to exactly 20 slides @ 20 secs each for a total of 6 min 40 secs. Pecha Kucha events springing up all over the globe (think Toastmasters for on steroids and add beer) and there is even an event coming up in Columbus, but I’ve yet to try out this style myself or even see it in action.
Thanks to Greg Schwartz, I now have a sampling. Here’s his contribution to the PK Face-off redone as a screencast. (Note: may need to turn up the volume up a little to hear the podcast sampling pieces)
Thanks Greg. Thanks Michael. And thanks Jane Dysart for trying out this wild idea as result of my small suggestion last fall. It's amazing to see how much ground you can cover in only 6 min 40 secs. NTS: Need to try this soon.
