Even the most frugal of Harvard students can read e-mail and check Facebook while waiting to depart from Boston Logan Airport this holiday season, thanks to Google’s free WiFi at 47 airports across the nation and on all Virgin America flights from now until Jan. 15.
Modernist composer John Cage may have passed away in 1992, but his organ composition "Organ2/ASLSP (As SLow aS Possible)" lives on: the current performance of it in Halberstadt, Germany, is slated to finish in 2640. Cage, whose other works incorporated radios, conch shells, and cactuses, enthusiastically broke down almost every existing preconception about what did and did not constitute music. In the process, he paved the way for later experimentation. In order to commemorate the centennial of Cage's birth, musical institutions around Boston are celebrating his daring work with several upcoming concerts.
