Who Knew? - 20x2 Video (Twitter + Flickr)
This was my video presentation for 20x2, a format where 20 people are called to answer a question in 2 minutes or less. This event has been a regular part of SXSW, but last week was the first time they came out to Chicago. I was lucky enough to be one of the participants.

For my video, I searched Twitter for the phrase "who knew." My rules were: no replies, no RT's, no links. Just plain text. From there, I looked for a corresponding image on Flickr. My rules were: I could only search for words used within the Tweet, and each photo had to be a CC licensed image.

I did a lot of manual searching, and spent a few weeks just compiling interesting tweets and photographs. I ended up with maybe three times the number of examples than I had time to show... but the ones I like most got included. I hope you like what I found.

PS: The song in the video is PercusienFa, a song by the incredibly talented Erik Mongrain, who was kind enough to grant me permission to use it for the piece.

I'd like to see some that didn't 'make the cut'... two minutes was too short for this kind of goodies!
