Pecha Kucha in Dallas

The first Pecha Kucha night in Dallas will be this Sunday at Smoke (next to the Belmont Hotel) from 7:20-9:20pm.

So what is Pecha Kucha you say? From the website:

"PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace."

The presenters at the inaugural meeting will be Allison V. Smith, Catherine Horsey, Brian Gibb, Cherie Boettcher, David Goltl, and Bang Dang (the best name ever!). This should be an interesting and diverse set of presentations.
