Google Calendar nee CL2

April 13th, 2006

My favorite Google calendar feature: Daily Agenda, a daily email overview of the days events. Though when you’re in there looking at the nofitications tab you’ll notice no notifications via IM support. (even for those of us using Jabber/GTalk)

Least favorite: Search public calendars is wrong wrong wrong, not the least because it shows me calendars for 2005.

Feels more done then recent Google releases, but what will make it is the GMail integration. (or break it if we all migrate away from GMail at some point)

Bonus: a new Google syndication namespace with event elements:

<gd:transparency value=""/>
     <gd:feedLink href=""/>
 <gd:eventStatus value=""/>
 <gd:when startTime="2006-04-14T15:00:00.000Z" endTime="2006-04-14T16:00:00.000Z"/>
 <gd:where valueString="100 Somestreet St., Jamaica Plain, MA"/>

Briefly on Google Calendar

March 8th, 2006

Yup, I saw the Michael’s coverage of Google Calendar aka CL2. From what little information we’ve got sounds like they’re doing a huge amount of it right.

Personally most intrigued by the idea that they’ll “combine their event creation feature with a web crawl and parsing of event data”. We ask a number of things of our calendars (well at least three), and one of the most important and least served to date is synchronicity.

update [6 hours later]: Well, some of it right at least.
