Subject: [gamedev-3] IGDA Sponsored Pecha Kucha Night

The following is an announcement from the NYC IGDA:

Greetings everyone,

It���s time for another Pecha Kucha night! Here's the deal - some space has become available at Parsons on October 27th and we want to put it to good use. The last Pecha Kucha event went over extremely well, so much so, that we figure it's about time we did it again. For those unaware of what Pecha Kucha presentations are, and the special format they utilize, here is how Wikipedia defines it:

"The idea behind Pecha Kucha is to keep presentations concise, the interest level up and to have many presenters sharing their ideas within the course of one night. This is how it works; each presenter is allowed a slideshow of 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds. This results in a total presentation time of 6 minutes 40 seconds before the next presenter is up.���

The topic for the night is Video Games and Game Development and we encourage everyone to submit a talk (c���mon it���s only 6 minutes, what have you got to lose?). We���ve intentionally kept the topic broad in the hopes that it will spawn a large variety of presentation ideas.

Now the important bit, how to submit a talk:

From now until the end of the week (10/13 ��� 10/16), just reply to this email with 1 to 2 sentences describing your presentation idea (no .ppt necessary). We'll then notify those chosen to present on 10/18. If your talk is chosen we are asking that PowerPoints be submitted by 10/25.

Remember presentations are only allowed to last 6 minutes 40 seconds and it's a great way to engage the community! Another reminder email will be sent out to the entire list soon with additional venue and presentation information.
