Europeana


Europe's digital library, museum and archive

In response to Google's project to archive American culture, the French convinced the EU to create their own archive called Europeana to counteract US cultural dominance.

Yes, but will they create a show called "European Gladiators"?

I just visited it. The server crashed because they got too many hits so they're having to re-engineer the whole site. It's a perfect symbol of Europe. Great culture, lousy technology.

Go to Paris for the cafes. Go to China for the computers.

Computers yes, but nothing you'd want to ingest!
