Sunday Roundup

This week demonstrated the power of shared experiences and having some collective fun -- i.e. virality. It began with social media all atwitter over Patricia Arquette's Oscar speech -- and backstage comments. Next up, the Internet was riveted by The Great Llama Chase -- as the camelids, part of a therapy visit (Emotional Support Llamas?), made a break for it during a bathroom break. Later that same day, the most viral #dress in history had everyone debating: white and gold, or blue and black? If you saw polka dots you should probably see a doctor. The episode culminated with a national teach-in about color and optics. The week ended on a sad note, with the passing of Leonard Nimoy, never wiser than in his Spock-worthy final tweet: "A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP." He lived long, and we all prospered from it.
