Rasterio in Colaboratory

Colaboratory is a free Jupyter notebook environment that requires no setup and runs entirely in the cloud.

I tried it out for the first time today and although I expected Rasterio to install and work – I've tried very hard to make it usable in this kind of application – it was still gratifying to see a little washed out thumbnail of band 1 of Landsat 8's land imager in my Colab notebook.
