Louis Armstrong in Giza, Egypt, 1961

This is perfection. It combines a love of romance, Egyptology, vintage travel, and an ultimate vision of jazz and love. The perfect photo.

What are the three best films you've seen of late that are NOT of this or the last decade? What are your recent favs?

Lastly, just out of curiosity - any fans of Old Hollywood in my circles? Of the films (or collectibles)?

Why +Nest Protect Claiming An Emergency Gave Me Comfort
/via +louisgray.com 

This morning, my Nexus 5 chirped with a notification I hadn't seen before. While I was at the office, my Nest application was telling me, in no uncertain terms, that there was an Emergency in the kitchen at home. There was smoke, and the alarm from our Nest Protect smoke alarm was sounding. I called home quickly, and my wife told me, embarrassed, there was simply a small issue with the microwave, and all was fine. And that's exactly what was supposed to happen.

The Sharing Economy + Office Space

Amazing article in +The Atlantic about Breather, the startup from +Julien Smith that provides privacy when you need it. 

In our crazy busy world sometimes working at Starbuck's isn't going to cut it. Breather solves that problem, and many others. 

Coming soon to SF, available already in NYC and Montreal. The app is beautiful and simple, too. 

I'm absolutely stoked to be on board as an investor, too.

Shiny: Astronaut Wears ‘Firefly’ T-Shirt In First Instagram From Space

And now, time for some thrilling heroics. NASA astronaut Steve Swanson sent out the first Instagram from space last week wearing none other than a Firefly T-shirt. There’s something to be said about a space-faring guy evoking images of Captain Mal doing the impossible in the plucky Serenity spaceship, isn’t there?

In the latest FIR interview, Shel spoke with Critical Mass Planning Director Mark Silverman and Creative Director Amy Haiar about the work they did developing JerryGarcia.com. More than just a musician's website, it's a proof-of-concept for any brand with a large fan base, a history, and a lot of content.

I had a lot of fun with this interview, given my musical tastes. I spoke with Critical Mass Planning Director Mark Silverman and Creative Director Amy Haiar about the recently-launched website, jerrygarcia.com. Unlike most musicians' sites -- which follow a fairly strict template -- the Garcia site is a place for fans to explore, listen and connect. They can share their own memories and add photos and images of things like ticket stubs to the tens of thousands of assets the site contains. The site excites me not just because I'm a Garcia fan, but because it's a proof-of-concept for any brand with a history, a large fan base and a lot of content. Give it a listen:

"Streamer is a powerful, yet easy way to explore our major waterways. With a simple map click, anyone can trace rivers and streams from a starting point all the way downstream to where a stream drains. Even more impressive, they can click on a stream and trace all others that drain to that point. Streamer also produces a report that includes a map and information about the people and places encountered along the streams traced."
