I listened to Pecha Kuchas before as a non-native English speaker. (I gave them as assignments to my students when I was an academic.)
Some of the best talks I have seen used this format.
It works if speakers do not see it just as a challenge to speak as fast as possible.
It is a powerful format when the images are used well to back or contrast what the speaker is saying.

If this weren't happening so late, I would go.   I think this may be one of the ways the IETF could be more efficient--I actually proposed having slots during the regular agenda time that are all-area lightning presentation sessions.   One concern: non-native english speakers may find the pace of a Pecha Kucha too rapid.   I'd be curious, since it originates from Japan, to hear what some non-native english-speaking IETF participants think about this.

Hey Folks-

I want to do an informal social thing in Berlin.  See below.  Please send me an email if you want to participate.  The event will happen if the secretariat gives me a room and we get a critical mass of presenters… watch this space.



Bad Attitude Pecha Kucha
Thursday evening at 22:30 in room TBD

A Pecha Kucha is a lightning-talk presentation format, originating in Japan, where a speaker presents 20 image-only slides that are each on the screen for 20 seconds and advance automatically.  With each talk lasting for 6:40, it has the feature of forcing presentations -- good or bad -- to be focused and brief.  This is an unofficial event. The topic should be a IETF-related and satirical or controversial in some way, although not mean-spirited.  Anyone can participate in this social event. (It will be BYOB.)

Format Details:

  *   Presentation slots are open to all, assigned first come, first served.
  *   To reserve a slot, a presenter needs to send a name and title to<> and receive confirmation.
  *   Presenters must agree to adhere to the Pecha Kucha format (20 slides, primarily image-only, automatically advancing every 20 seconds).  There are lots of online tutorials and suggestions for how to make a good Pecha Kucha.  Here are a few: [1<>], [2<>], [3<>].
