H/T to +John Lewis

I'm more than willing to go back to Flickr. I never got on the photography posting thing but I loved the work on Flickr back in the day!
This is such unabashed good news that I’m shouting from the rooftops.

Smugmug is a wonderful service and has been forever. Flickr was one of the all time greats, and also one of the primary cautionary tale when someone big and dull buys something small and neat.

I’d be delighted if anyone was buying Flickr and trying to bring it back. Photo management online has become such a mess and the options are all creepy (Google, Instagram/Facebook) or deeply flawed (Apple, Dropbox). I am genuinely willing to pay for a service that is neither. That it’s been bought by a company that has a track record of getting it has me over the moon.

Right up my alley. Probably one of my favourite albums of all time.
"Kind of Blue": How this Miles Davis album Changed Jazz by "making the definitive break with bebop and setting the standard for modal jazz, and thus the explosion of free jazz innovations to come." http://www.openculture.com/2018/04/kind-of-blue-how-miles-davis-changed-jazz.html

Sharing from a G+ friend who's wife has recently passed away after a tough illness. He's sharing his grief with us and it's very hard for me to fathom how difficult this is for him and his family after this loss.

I don't think I'd know how to function. It would be a real-life "I can't even."

Guilty as charged.
I've told myself this many times. Then the new books somehow appear on my Kindle or magically jump into my bag at Barnes and Noble 😉.

It's time for me to start reading more. The mythologies need more scrutiny.

Stephen Fry is a brilliant mind and along with Dave Grohl, there isn't much I won't listen to this man say.
How the myths of Prometheus and Pandora may echo our coming relationship with artificially intelligent entities. A short, 6-minute conversation with Stephen Fry. Excellent.

H/T to +Irreverent Monk

I'm all about the data. It's imperative I get it as well as as much as I can do I can make effective decisions. (I'm more Vulcan than human most days).

So how do I parse what's good and what's not? I keep asking why, but, is that enough? I don't know if I've got the time to sort through thirty sources to ensure a relative semblance of the truth.

This is a good read and definitely another tool to add to my repertoire but, it's saddening to think that money and the illusion of power makes people slant their stories. Truth is relative it seems.
