I know it is still on the old AA site.

Any plans for porting this to the new site or will it just stay where it is? It is a valuable resource and represents a fair bit of effort on Bill's part.

Davy has generously agreed

Davy has generously agreed to take a stab at it. The second and thus far final version of the matrix that's still on the old AA site was never fully completed, plus all of the data is out of date. The only logical answer is to create a new matrix from scratch, complete with new data. If this works out, then this should finally fulfill the promise of the original idea. There's no timeline, but we'll keep everyone posted as things progress and certainly elicit feedback for tweaks/improvements. I'd love to see this become a signature AA feature. No pressure though, because right now we have nothing anyway.

I'd love to work on it, though it already looks great in its current form.

Well I did teach SQL back in the day....

Well I did teach SQL back in the day but I am seriously lacking the time to build a web interface around a database. Preferably it would have to be something like a separate CMS just running the Matrix next to our current one...

If someone had the technical

If someone had the technical capability to build a database to house it, I'd be happy to populate it with info, images, videos, etc. We have unlimited space and bandwidth now, so we have no issues there, but none of the three of us, me, Mark, or Matt, is technically proficient enough to create the engine. I'd LOVE to have it back.
