Ode Magazine
the online community for intelligent optimists

Ode is a print and online publication about positive news, about the 
people and ideas that are changing our world for the better.  Ode was 
founded in the spring of 1995 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands by 
Jurriaan Kamp and Helene de Puy.  Kamp, a former editor and 
correspondent with the leading Dutch daily NRC Handelsblad, and 
de Puy wanted to create an alternative to mainstream publications, 
a magazine that was open to new inspirations and new visions from 
around the world.  The cover of the first issue - a close-up image of a 
radiant woman laughing out loud - captured the joy and spontaneity 
they wanted Ode to embody.
