Attention Dead Heads!

The long-awaited Grateful Dead Archive is now live at http://www.gdao.org/. Built on top of the open source content management system Omeka, one of the best features of the site is the ability for anyone to contribute their own Grateful Dead memorabilia or stories.

I probably shouldn’t say this, but the site is probably best experienced as you experienced their concerts — stoned.
