Dateline: Programmer and founder of the bliss project
I'm Dan Gravell, the founder and programmer of the bliss project.
I am a computer programmer by trade but have always been interested in music. I have been building and organising my digital music collection since about 1998 so have learnt a few tricks along the way!
bliss is software for organising large music collections by maintaining consistency, correctness and completeness of your music library's data.
