An online time and place for everything

I noticed an interesting article in The Guardian newspaper this morning, written by Jack Schofield, it talks about last weeks launch of Google's new calendar. This is an interesting follow-on from my Web 2.0 articles:

'Google Calendar is faster and easier to use. Like Gmail, Google's email service, Google Calendar downloads and runs JavaScript code in the browser (Internet Explorer and Firefox only), which makes the user interface much more responsive. Google has also exploited the iCalendar internet standard, which has superseded the old vCal, and XML, the eXtensible Markup Language. The first makes it much easier to share calendar data; XML makes it easy to add a button to a web page, which users can click to add an event to their Google Calendar.'
