Arrington just posted some early screenshots of the Google calendar.
He also writes:
"It’s also clear from the event creation functionality that Google is is
going to attempt to aggregate events like eventful and zvents do now."
I think that was a pretty obvious move for them... I wrote about that back in October.
As for the rest of my wishlist for Carl Sjogreen, I don't want to have to enter in all the events that I'm interested or go searching. I use Gmail... please crawl it to determine stuff that I'm interested. Coming up with something that looks at all my e-mail, figures out that I want all the Met games on my calendar, kayaking stuff, Rammstein concerts and the Philharmonic Concerts in the Park shouldn't be too hard.
Oh, and went my friends send me e-mails about their birthday parties that aren't evites, make those dates clickable so that I can add them to my GCal. And please, please make it sync with outlook, otherwise its a non starter b/c then I can't get it on my phone.
Oh, and a publishable calendar widget for my blog would be great, too... so people could tell when I'm busy and see where I am so they can stalk... err.. visit me.
Thanks for your time. Feel free to contact me to be an alpha tester. I promise I won't blog it until I'm allowed to.
PS... I assume Gcal will eventually get placed here.
