Europeana is (finally) online but… – Kosmopolito

I must have been unlucky to find Europeana down with the sentence “opening in early 2009”, because just afterwards it was back online. As Kosmopolito notes, there is still a long way to go to make it usable, and more importantly, reusable. And as he notices, at the same time the German Archive release thousand of items for free publishing on Wikipedia at no cost.
I keep on noticing the gap between expensive, large scale, slowly developing, top-down, portal centric efforts by some governments, and what is going on the Internet.
