Columns on @U2 / U2tours / U2W Update.
« on: May 12, 2011, 08:33:29 AM »
Hi All --

I just wanted to bring to your attention that recently there has been some opportunity to write a few columns on @U2.  I've done two "Off the Record" columns and also a story about what "Duals" could have been.

Off the Record Volume 11, Number 461

Off the Record Volume 11, Number 457

What U2 Duals Could Have Been

Just because I'm popping up on atu2 these days doesn't mean I'm ignoring other projects.  Over at u2tours.com we are rebuilding the database, and have just hired new staff to help with the clean up around the site.  We've also been busy uncovering dates that U2 have played live that most have forgotten about.  We even found an entire tour that was missing from most lists you see online.

And finally u2wanderer.org - Carl is traveling but also working on updates to the back end of the site.  I'm working on the collection of new information and have just finished cataloging my entire collection of releases (900+ items at this count) so that I know what I have, and what I will need images of in the future.  I've been in contact with a few people about the next phase of the discography, and I expect that as we get into summer we'll see some progress being made on expanding the discography.  I also have some plans for columns and lists to improve what is already present on the site.  I think those of you who use it as a resource, will find it improving greatly as we go forward...

Lots going on!  I'm excited to have the opportunity to get back into the website.  It's been 16 years now since I started the first version of the website, and 23 years since I first started tracking discography information on paper.  It's been difficult to find time of late to keep up with some of it, but the columns on atu2 are evidence I'm jumping back into the pool full force...

If anyone is interested in helping out in any way on the discography drop me a note at aaron <at> u2wanderer.org and give me an idea what you would be interested in.

Many thanks!
Aaron
