My name is David Haskiya and I work for Europeana as Product Developer. I actually started this blog as a little labs area to play with and test Europeana feeds and features for content re-use. However, I’ve decided to start blogging about Europeana and various other GLAM topics. All opinions expressed in this blog are my own.
About the name of the blog: According to the myth Kadmos was the brother of Europa. He left Phoenicia in search of her and came to Greece where founded the city of Thebes and introduced writing, the Kadmeian Letters.
The painting in the header was made by Noël Nicolas Coypel and was painted in 1726 or 1727. It’s now displayed in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The image is in the Public Domain.
