Feeding the beast

The other day at the library I realized that, once again, I’ve been missing a lot of good free movies because I never remember to look at the calendar.

So, I decided to feed the beast a little: I sent email to a few organizations I like, asking them to consider publishing their (currently lame) calendars in Google Calendar. Then I could subscribe to them, either in Google Calendar or using ical.

Ideally every place in Boulder — the theaters, art galleries, city council, swimming pools, radio stations, libraries, etc — would publish their calendars this way. It isn’t too much to ask; send email to groups in your city today.

  • I would imagine this will get easier over the next year or two as more and more software, web-based and otherwise, supports ical. Maybe even caldav.
