30 Boxes

One of the things I’ve been looking for is a great, simple calendaring tool that I can integrate into the blog for events, activities, travel, etc. Well, I’ve been searching for months – I guess what I’m looking for is something simple that works like Flickr, but with events. I just haven’t found it…but today, on Robert Scoble’s blog, he says he received an early copy of 30 Boxes and says things such as “wow” and “beautiful.”

Could this be what I’m looking for? I won’t know until Sunday when they launch the Public Beta. Thomas Hawk has a lot more in a blog entry called “30 Boxes, Best… Calender… EVER!” Apparently 30 Boxes has great search capabilities and you’re able to share your calendar with friends by e-mail address. But, you’re not just restricted to all or nothing – you can even restrict what the people can see by using tags. There is a quote on the page saying “30 Boxes will be to calendars what GMail was to Email.” I can’t wait to try this out…
