    Twitter Drama 

    You might want to read my previous post first, when I explained about Pecha Kucha Night in “The Confession of A Toy Addict”

    This month (in the 5th Bandung PK Night) was my turn to talk about another addiction, my addiction to twitter.

    At first I was thinking about selling twitter from a tech point of view, how its simplicity can be addictive. But then one of my friend in twitter wrote this, “Twitter as a tool is not that cool, but people like you or @jowyang who makes it cooler”.

    (awww… he really made me blush indeed)

    Come to think of it, he’s right. It’s the people, not the tool per se (sorry for quoting you). It whom I followed and the everyday stories from our daily engagements. So then I decided to highlight more on the people and the ‘dramas’.

    Despite of my trembling voice (and hands) and a few lack of timing management here and there, I think it went okay. After my talk, I got some new (tweeple) friends who came to me and thanked me for showing them there are many ways to enjoy twitter. Some even think it was funny… O_o

    Anyway, here’s the complete version of my presentation. You can watch the youtube video (of how I humiliated myself embedded) after the 20th slide.

    If you like it, I am happy. If you’re inspired, I am thrilled.

    If you’re laughing at me, oh well… at least I amused you.

    And thank you, my dear twitter friends for all your real time digital supports 😉

    Confession of a Toy Addict 

    A few bits about Pecha Kucha:

    The main objective of Pecha Kucha is to make sure everyone is able to present their message as effective (and amusing) as possible. The idea came out from 2 architects who lived in Japan. Pecha Kucha itself came from the Japanese words “chit chat”.

    In Pecha Kucha Night, people from various creative industries are invited to speak as guest speakers, about whatever topic they choose, limited by 20 slides only, 20 seconds per slide.

    The main challenge for those speakers is to deliver the message to their audience in given limited time. You can browse many tips related to this in youtube. The first thing you might want to try is by forgetting all those basic power point templates (bullet points, pie chart, etc) and begin to craft your presentation as a visual driven comic panel or a nice flowing storyboard.

    Of course, other challenge would be to fight your fear of public speaking (I speak on behalf of myself here)

    Confession of a Toy Addict

    In the 3rd Bandung Pecha Kucha Night, my husband was invited as a guest speaker. Owning a vintage 80s museum, anyone would be tempted to fill his 20 slides with his possessions. However, Aldo found another interesting way. He told his story from an angle of a toys addict.

    Beside flicking at his presentation slide, you can read (in bahasa) his explanations for each slide in this flickr album.
