I have had two problems with online Grateful Dead resources.
1.) The data is a mess, there are multiple names for the same song (i.e., IKYR vs. I Know You Rider vs. Rider).
2.) There was no way for people to mark which versions of a song are their favorite, then have those favorites aggregated to let other people see what the community thinks the best versions are. In fact, I see the "what's your favorite version of song-x?" question a lot.
I tried to solve these problems by creating an open source project to solve the messy data problem. Then I built a website using that open source data to solve the "best version" problem. I'm hoping to get some community involvement and have people start marking songs as favorites.
The site is www.shiningbest.com
I'd love to know what you guys and gals think.
