What We Learned This Week

• The past and the future are colliding: Friday morning, on a platform waiting for a train to go into New York, people watched The Royal Wedding on their iPads. An event happening thousands of miles away, in very old buildings, was casually watched in real time by people simply waiting to go about their days.

• It is possible to be immersed in a Shakespeare play and experience the intentions of the characters up-close. There is such a thing as wordless Shakespeare.
