Jean Snow is Executive Director of the PechaKucha organization. He also helps run the PechaKucha Night in Tokyo -- please get in touch if you are interested in presenting at a future event. For a more intimate salon-like discussion group, join him at his monthly PauseTalk event.
PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in 2003 as an event for young creatives to meet, network, and show their work in public, using the PechaKucha 20x20 format. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world.
PauseTalk is a Tokyo-based series of events that take place at Cafe Pause on the first Monday of every month, with a start time of 20:00. The idea is to create a forum where creatives can get together and discuss their own projects, as well as cultural currents of the city. The next edition is December 2.

The Codex is an almost weekly podcast featuring an eclectic mix of music, hosted by Jean Snow and recorded live in Tokyo. Complete playlists for all episodes are posted on the website, and you can subscribe to RSS feeds of posts and episodes. The show is also in the iTunes Store.
