there is the "Shows and Songs" section of deadnet which seems to be to be
the perfect place for it.

Except I have a feeling it'd get more careful and literate management if it
were in the hands of a serious Deadhead scholar rather than the Rhino
staffers.

Another possibility occurs to me. Maybe Alex Allan would like to
incorporate the AGDL into his Grateful Dead Lyric and Song Finder site.
I'll ask him! (Alex--are you still reading these discussions?)

It's looking like Rhino might well be interested. I'll be speaking
this afternoon with Ben Trask to discuss how it might work to put the
annotated lyrics site up on dead.net.

My thought is that I'd like to ask that the continued expansion and
revision of the site be overseen by a loose-knit but select editorial
board. Here are some names of folks who may be interested, given the
conversations that have happened up until now: Christian, Luke Meyers,
Robin Russell, and maybe Mary E. Anyone I've missed? I thought I'd
propose to Ben that he work with me to figure out how to insure quality
while the site keeps developing within dead.net.

OK, just talked with Rhino, in the persons of Ben Trask and Analise
Dubner, and they are both pretty jazzed about this idea. They mentioned
"wiki" as a model, and I mentioned <xian>, and we talked for awhile
about how intensive it would be to migrate the thing, but we all
thought it would be worthwhile. So I sent Ben a list of the names of
those in this discussion who have seemed interested, and hopefully it
will move forward from here! Yay!

hey David, just in case you hadn't seen it, there is a forum topic for 
Annotated on dead.net now.  It's here:

David, rather belatedly, yes I do still read this forum. I fear my day
job is too busy at present to let me volunteer to incorporate AGDL
into my Lyric and Song Finder site (would you believe that my new boss
is Jack Straw?!). But I'd be glad to help in other ways if I can.

Thanks, all. I logged in to the forum and left a teaser about the
future of the website. Glad to hear Alex is willing to help out as he
is able. This new thing promises to be better than anything so far, in
terms of a broader perspective and more input. Not to mention better
design and technology!

OK, so I was overly optimistic. As of last week, the idea of moving
the Annotated Lyrics website to the dead.net domain was quashed, at
least for the time being, by Hunter, who is still uncomfortable with
any kind of "official" interpretation or deconstruction of the lyrics.
I understand his point of view, but I had hoped that the longevity, in
addition to the print publication of the substance of the site, might
mitigate his feelings. 

So, I have frozen the site to further updating, and am taking a
hands-off approach from here on out. Future decisions can be made by
Ice Nine, in conjuction with whomever might want to continue the
project. It was fun, and I'm done!

The offer still stands to host it at WikiTheFlood, which is anything
but official!

Hey Christian-- 
Thanks! 
You're on, if you really want it. We would need to check with Ice
Nine...
Send me email, and we'll start the ball rolling.
