Last year in St. Louis, we had a lot of fun (and learned a thing or two) at the closing banquet with Pecha Kucha, the fast-paced presentation entertainment that's sweeping the world! Conceived in Japan (Pecha Kucha is Japanese for "chit-chat"), it's 20 slides, 20 seconds each, all interesting, no fluff (questions? pecha-kucha.org). Whether it was Daan Strebe's odd projections, or Lou Cross' tour of the food world, or Jim Meacham's ethereal visit to Asia, there was something for everyone. Thanks to Ginny Mason for putting on such a great show!
We want to hear from you this year! What are you dying to show us, but don't want to bother with a full conference paper? Topics may include, (but not be limited to), creative ideas, work in progress, design techniques, your favorite maps, hobbies, travel, and/or research. Wacky obsessions are actually preferred! Maybe you have a new idea you'd like to try out, or a new project you're starting. It doesn't even have to be map-related. Only 6 minutes and 40 seconds!
If you are interested, please contact Brandon Plewe (firstname.lastname@example.org) by September 7th. We look forward to seeing what you've got!
