This is good but I think you could have snuck some qualitative analysis in there as well. I'd be interested in seeing the variance in performance quality. In each tour or year or era, how long would it take before I heard a top notch version? It would be interesting to see that taken to a set or entire show level as well. Granted, most fans probably already have well established ideas on this, but a visual representation like you have done here, would be interesting. You can really get crazy with BI and you could probably spark some debate for the right topic. Kudos for the time you've put into this!Thanks for the feedback! One of the short term goals is to hook the dashboard up to the Phish.net API so it can refresh data in real time. At the same time, we can pull in thew review data and so much more (we are just using basic when/where/how data at the moment). Of course, that data will only be as effective as the subjective nature of reviews, but I agree that it will be a cool dimension to layer in!
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
