I now have possession of screenshots from Google’s long delayed new Ajax calendar application, which will be called “CL2″. It was only a matter of time before someone broke down and leaked these – as far as I know these screen shots are the first on the public web. (…More…)

Leak, or Marketing? Either way, this will probably kill most of the web calendars.

  2. Rob says:

    Is there a current Google calendar? I’ve been looking for a calendar to start using.

  3. Jamie says:

    All of that work for nothing. Web calendars!? Blah!

  4. Don says:

    Calendar. Gmail. Hmmm. Look out Outlook.

    I use a paper weekly calendar. Never needs batteries, drop-proof, light weight and portable, and fits in my back pocket without cracking when I sit down. And it costs a lot less than an electronic version.

    This is great, but you’ll never get 100% of your friends and business colleagues to use the same calendar system. Let alone one that lets you find open slots among all your friend’s calendars.

    We need an open source Standard for exchanging e-mails that negotiate for open slots on a calendar, and allow people to insert appointments, whether they’re using Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, Outlook, Eudora, Thunderbird, Mozilla, whatever.

    Like you could send out a Query e-mail saying: “What’s you availability for dinner on March 10-12 or March 17-19.” Then people could send back a reply that they totally control, giving their open slots. Then the central person could easily see what’s available (with the right feature/display in their calendar), choose a time, and send out an e-mail to insert that into the attendees’ calendars.

    Why on earth hasn’t this been done yet?
    I could write up the XML Schema for the messages in a couple hours.
