20x2 v 15
What Choice Did You Have?
Now in our 15th year!
What happens when you take twenty handpicked creatives and luminaries, give them each two minutes before a live audience and the same (fuzzy) question to unravel? That's the premise behind 20x2, the popular event staged for the past fourteen years at SXSW Interactive in Austin.
Join us as our twenty wrangle with the question "What Choice Did You Have?" You'll laugh, you may cry, and it wouldn't surprise us if you came away inspired.

What is This About?
A very brief introduction to 20x2.
20x2 is an ongoing project that exists to showcase the creativity that lurks in each of us. Writers, musicians, filmmakers, web geeks and other bon vivants are asked to take two minutes each to answer the question of the day. The results can be as varied as the emotions and reactions they evoke.
Since the first show at SXSWi in 2001, 20x2 has grown to include an ever-expanding pantheon of participants. Show creator and host Kevin Newsum and collaborative partner Jeff Rider have helped provide the framework for each unique set of performances, while Mark Couvillion brings it all together into one (hopefully) cohesive evening. But the real kudos, of course, belong to the many people who have made 20x2 what it is...a reflection of that same dynamic originality that inspires each of us, brought together on one special night...and then repeated in spirit each time we get together.
