The Search, Sir, Was Profitable

I realized yesterday night that I did not post on the first day of my pledge to post once a day.  However, I have been thinking that once a week might be a more appropriate goal due to my current amount of work.

I just finished work on a new search component on Shakesbook.  The search queries a database of early modern plays, authors, acting companies, acting venues, and printers.  (The direct link is here.)  I hope that it is flexible enough for a quick search yet have enough data to also support scholarship.  I designed it with this two-fold intent in mind.  Hopefully this database will pan out into more features in the future as well as grow in size as I continue reading.

Let me know what you think of it below or via email.
