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.

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.
