Euro Museum Crashes!

Europeana Think Culture Logo (2008)Europeana, the new Euro online museum, was launched two days ago by Jose Manuel Durao Barroso - president of the European Commission - with the fat-cat ministers of Culture of the European Union in Brussels, Belgium. Latest news: "The Europeana site is temporarily not accessible due to overwhelming interest after its launch (10 million hits per hour). We are doing our utmost to reopen Europeana in a more robust version as soon as possible. We will be back by mid-December" (title link). They hope! Same old story. Haw, haw, haw. Hard cheese, Manuel. How much is this white elephant costing us? CLICK to see the video of how it might look, if they ever get it to work. It's only in English or possibly American (I didn't check).
