Sorry, I know my next post was supposed to be about writing. I’m starting a short series on the subject of doing it faster and easier. But today’s Google Doodle celebrating Debussy’s birthday is not to be missed. Not only is it extraordinary as a web artwork and animation, it is an excellent example of viral content.
So I wanted to take a moment to just encourage my readers to go see it. Just go to Google’s home page or any search page and click on the Google Doodle to fully open the artwork and play the animation. Naturally, it features Debussy’s most famous piano work, Clair De Lune, as its musical accompaniment.
See it, hear it and go out and do likewise.
