Pecha Kucha Night Montpelier

Posted on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 by 1 comment

My old friend Lars is up to some new tricks in central Vermont…

I am asking everyone I know to support a new effort in Montpelier: the Onion River Exchange’s Pecha Kucha Night. The idea is pretty cool, and really simple:
– Two rounds of presenters
– Each presenter has 6 minutes and 20 slides with which to present their idea
– 5 presenters each round
– Do it somewhere fun, with food and drink

Think of it as TED meets speed dating – in Central Vermont. Seriously, should be a lot of fun – especially with YOU on stage 😉

Anyway, here’s what I’m asking:
– Think of yourself as someone who might want to present a big, bold idea you’ve been slaving away on
– Pass along the flier to anyone else you know who has an idea they’ve been working on and encourage them to contact me.

The invitation is *especially* for those whose work communicates well visually. They should get in touch with me BEFORE April 30.

So, let’s paint the town Pecha Kucha!

Thanks, and hope you’re enjoying this prime gardening weather.

  1. You know you’re getting old when you become an old friend. Its good to be in good company 🙂 Seriously, thank you Michael for passing on the word. For anyone reading in Burlington area, I encourage you to think about starting up your own Pecha Kucha in that city as well – learn more about the ‘movement’ at
