talk20


looks an exciting event but also embarassing since it is going to be my first time to present something in public. although they say talk 20 is not a lecture but a gathering, the crowd appearing in the photos of the website seems big.
besides the event takes place in crownhall!!!

some of the people that are presenting are martin felsen [national winner for the city of the future with his work with urbanlab], paula palombo [director of extension gallery], thomas kearns [young passionate professor at iit dedicated to computers], john jourden [chief editor at archinect] and others. not to forget barbara di grigorio [enthousiastic global woman working at holabird and root] and enrica longo [quite but strong young architect currently researching prefab and mobility in architecture]. please click on names for more information.
more about talk20 after friday!
i am looking forward!

*
the format of talk20 is predecided:
everybody has to present 20 slides for 20 seconds each. so each powerpoint lasts for 6 min and 40 sec.
talk20 is similar to pecha kucha. i think the idea of these short presentations of creative individuals has started in tokyo.

Hi Zenovia, just wanted to touch base with you and get feedback from your participation in friday's talk20:chicago. We heard it was a great success from Eric(the MC). And we've been getting tons of positive email. We would greatly appreciate it if you could provide us with some feedback. Any ideas/suggestions/comments?
