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: http://www.dead.net/forum/complete-annotated-grateful-dead-lyrics
Alex Allan (alexallan) Sun 1 Jul 07 23:07
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.
David Dodd (ddodd) Mon 2 Jul 07 14:16
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!
Christian Crumlish (xian) Mon 20 Aug 07 10:56
The offer still stands to host it at WikiTheFlood, which is anything but official!
David Dodd (ddodd) Mon 20 Aug 07 11:07
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.

David, I sent something on Amherst to your Well email account.
David Dodd (ddodd) Tue 19 Feb 13 13:40
Yes, I got it! Very fun, Robin. Sorry not to have responded... I like it that you caught my question from the floor about reincarnation...

Question of the Symposium, I thought.
