John, thank you for your post. :)
Here is a really successful project from where I live that Fedora
might benefit from.
Portland's Tech Calendar, good example with future events at -
and integrated google maps to the venues, too -
Excellent. Got to love Google code... http://code.google.com/
It is different from the traditional "calendaring/Outlook"
type solution that has been under discussion, but it is extremely easy for people to add
events to and for others to query and get updates from (RSS and ical feeds).
Yes, absolutely! As well as exportable to "iCalendar," "Google
Calendar" and "My Yahoo!" :)
Maybe it would be useful for a small segment of our project like
weekly team meetings. It could also be used on much larger scale for Fedora events around
John, well stated and a great idea indeed. :)
Everyone, please have a great day! :~)
