Back on Wednesday 26th March it was the big 50th event for Pecha Kucha Night Tokyo and I was very happy to be invited by Mark Dytham to make one of the presentations. I gave a bit of a rundown on the Salaryman Sato campaign we put together last year. It was great to get a lot of people giving positive feedback and asking questions afterwards.
It has taken about four and a half years of monthly events to get to this point with Pecha Kucha Night Tokyo, and the event is really blooming in popularity and has spread to more than 110 cities around the world. Congratulations Mark and Astrid and the KDa Allstars on a big achievement! What many people don’t realize is that Tokyo is the birthplace of Pecha Kucha Night.
As you may also know, we at UltraSuperNew Inc. are developing the online presence for Pecha Kucha Night. The new platform was released in January and we are steadily rolling out new features. Most recently, we put the mailing system for the event notifications online, so everyone who is subscribed via the website should be receiving both global and city mails, depending on your preferences as the oprganisers for the respective events start to use the system. We also have added a more sophisticated system for tagging presenters for events, so now the archive of events will be much more accessible as we grow the system.
Get out to a Pecha Kucha Night near you.
