I discovered Upcoming.org yesterday and immediately set about looking for events and entering my own.
Like any good social networking site Upcoming.org provides code snippets (they call them “Upcoming Badges”) that allow you to list your stuff on your own site. Like my other favorites (del.icio.us, Flickr) this one started independently and was purchased by Yahoo! (I use Flickr for all the photos on this site; I haven’t integrated my del.icio.us link list yet.)
So, my event calendar is now listed on the right. The first 10 events are listed; clicking the More link will transport you to Upcoming.org to see the full list in all its glory.
I was pretty psyched about the first event (2/27) on today’s list, but I was feeling sick after work, so I ended up at home on the couch adding the event calendar to my sidebar and writing this post. Not a complete waste of time, but it would have been nice to get out. At least there’s other stuff on the calendar this week.
