So what is PechaKucha?

PechaKucha is a an artform that has caught fire in Japan. Here's the premise: 20 images, 20 seconds each, and you narrate live. "Ignite" is a derivation of PechaKucha: 15 images by 20 seconds each. It differs from DST in that it is live, and the fact that pics stay up there for a set amount of time. The topics are as varied as a rainbow. Personally, I found it much harder than DST because of the "live" well as the timing. Does this artform hold a place for our kids in school? I think so!
