AUSTIN @ PECHA KUCHA - NOV 5
Pecha Kucha is a fun, fast-paced presentation format in which every speaker gets 20 PPT slides and 20 seconds per slide. Our very own Austin Kocher will present "Place: The Final Frontier" at this week's Pecha Kucha event at Wild Goose Creative, starting at 7pm.

A teaser for his talk: Have you ever been to Junctionview Studios, Free Geek, or Third Hand Bike Co-op? You don't have to fly to another galaxy to find far-out places. People around the world -- and right here in Columbus -- are discovering ways to create radically new places, transform traditional places for fresh purposes, and create new potential for collaboration. Be there or be square!

People, not speed.
