I love Google Cultural Institute

From time to time we make those tiny discoveries that make us very, very happy. So happy that we want to jump high into the sky, laugh very loud or just share our joy with others at the Speakers’ Corner if our extroversion level is high. Since my is not, I will stick to this post.

So you are probably wondering what made me so happy. Surprisingly, it was… Google. And not because a location on Google maps is matching an actual place. That would not be enough. But Google Cultural Institute is more than I need.

A single web-site full of stories and collections from around the world that you can discover with a single click. And the content is really interesting, just have a look at this article about 10 Amazing Facts About Colour Blue.

They are also working with various museums to capture the finest details of artworks from their collection which means once you fully zoomed in, you can see every single brush stroke! Yes, you can see more than in a museum!

I will not fall asleep today from all that excitement… It is too much…
