<div>Quoting Christian Einfeldt (<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org" target="_blank">email@example.com</a>):<br><br>> I am wondering if we could get some kind of public calendar going and post<br>> it to the SF-LUG site? I am thinking of a google calendar, for example.
<br><br></div>Just FYI, Google Calendar is not open source. It's also my personal<br>view that LUGs should host their own services, rather than relying on<br>commercial services (with or without exchange of funds) offered by Web

http://linuxmafia.com/bale/</a><br><br>Suggestions? My first impluse is that it might just make sense to email stuff to Rick's calendar, linked above. Rick has been maintaining this calendar for years and years now, and so maybe it makes sense to bring eyeballs where they have the best chance of finding updated, accurate stuff. The only downside to doing so is that it continues to place a lot of work on Rick, and what if he takes a vacation or something? But Rick has been going strong for a long time now, and doesn't seem to show any signs of fatigue, so it seems as if it will be fine to continue to maybe just use Rick's page.
