Hi Ted-

I hope you’ll reconsider and extend your bedtime for a night but understand if you don’t.  The choice of time and the pechakucha format are deliberate to emphasize the non-work dimension of this.  The pechakucha emphasis on non-text-based presentations is probably a bad fit for technical proposals (although I may be surprised next week).  I think the idea of lightning talks for the IETF is a great one.  The Applied Networking Research Workshop on Saturday will be using them and I’d love to see some working groups try it as well.

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.

>> 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.)

>> 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 <>].
