Paul Reinheimer has a new post to his blog today talking about a special event happening at this year's php|works conference - Pecha Kucha.
The format is a little bit different than a talk (thank god) and hopefully a lot more fun. Basically the presenter gets up there with twenty slides, each are going to be shown for exactly 20 seconds, for a total of six minutes forty seconds. No take backs, no do-overs, no boring slides full of code.
He tosses in a few FAQs for those interested (who can do it, what can it cover, etc) and who to contact to get yourself signed up - drop Elizabeth Naramore an email and let her know you're interested.
