"The beast that bears me, tired with my woe, Plods dully on, to bear that weight in me, As if by some instinct the wretch did know His rider lov'd not speed being made from thee." Sonnet 50, 5-8 #ShakespeareSunday

#PublicDomain @swkplay is a work of genius. @ForristalClarke have created a snapshot of this year on social media and it is awesome. @AdamLenson has such a command of this new media that even the technical difficulties and dropped stream were seamlessly integrated.

Bravo to @ForristalClarke for their Zeitgeist-nailing Public Domain: a metamodern musical collage of life on/through social media. Sincerely hopeful, infectiously uplifting and wonderfully written and performed by the duo. A beautiful snapshot of the positive power of technology!
