PechaKucha is the latest craze in intellectual entertainment, a world-wide phenomenon that’s part education, part meet-up, and all fun. Born in Japan, PechaKucha (pronounced peh-CHAK-cha) is a gathering of people making and witnessing presentations on just about any topic. The only limitation is the format: with 20 slides at 20 seconds each, presentations are fast- paced, rhythmic, sometimes poetic idea events.• UDihus6tWEPPW7QjqH1izkA
