If you didn't make it to the last one, you really missed out on a great time. So don't make the same mistake twice.

And, it sounds like they already have a lineup of speakers ready. But, if you want in, it doesn't hurt to submit your name.

Don't know what the heck Pecha Kucha is? Here's the rundown: Pronounced “peh-cha ku-cha,” the word is Japanese for the sound of conversation, the event is essentially a series of clever presentations by clever folks. They generally focus on design, art, photography, culture, and the like. But, to keep things concise and hoping, each presenter only gets to present 20 slides for 20 seconds each.

Sound interesting? Well, it is.
