Found these in Wired 15.09 (October 2007):

  • Pecha-kucha: a sort of PowerPoint haiku in which presentations of exactly 20 slides, displayed for 20 seconds each, compete for honor and glory.
  • Miss Management, a simulation game that let’s you play middle manager. “You’ll have to juggle incoming work tasks, keep everyone from getting stressed out, and help the coworkers achieve their goals, from flirting at the watercooler to getting more work done than anyone else!” Oh boy.
  • And by the way, here are some social networking sites to avoid. Example: Trek Passions. “What it is: Sci-fi personals for Star Trek fans. Who you’ll meet: Men — sad, lonely men.”
