This came to mind because I'm cleaning out closets and coming across boxes and boxes of tapes and slides... Back when the boys started playing, cassettes were a big breakthrough. For years, mailing them around the country was a huge part of the scene. Now you can often download a show right after it's been played, or watch it in real time from thousands of miles away. Things we could only dream of a couple of decades ago are now routine--not just real-time setlists, real-time video for all to see.

Posted: February 8, 2010 - 5:59pm Just got this from Stu Nixon, who asks me to pass it on to the Dead.net community: DeadBase Returns! And we’re looking for a little help from our friends… We're back! Or at least we're thinking about it... By popular demand we are in the process of determining the feasibility of publishing a new edition of DeadBase and are looking for some help. While a totally revised DBXII is still a possibility for the future, right now we are considering putting out a reprint of DBXI with an appendix of corrections and additions to the setlists.
