Online calendars

I have been getting organised with online calendars.

I asked some colleagues at work if any community organisations they were involved in used subscrib-able calendars. A number said yes, so I looked into setting it up for a few organisations I deal with, as none of them use one.

Essentially I set up a new calendar with Google Calendar and then copied the public URL for that calendar. People use the URL to subscribe in their calendar program. Then I made a simple web page for each. Google Calendar provides a way to embed a calendar in an iframe so you can see a sample.

Some organisations I made a calendar for will probably make their own one day, but for now people can share mine. You can see a few at http://users.on.net/~bhkelley/calendar.html
