Wish: THE calendar/diary for me
announced Google Calendar
. Yet another way of organizing your
I have tried *many* methods to organize my time. I started with my memory. Than I decided that I'd
like to use my memory for other stuff and I bought paper diary. It was good, but I wanted to try
some electronic device to manage my diary and time plan. I have tried Palms, I have tried computer
programs, web calendars, now I even have iCal on my Mac and calendar in my mobile phone. And now
Google produced its Calendar. And I'm back and still use my paper diary and it works great.
Sure, I can't share my calendar data (of course I can - it is as simple as creating photo copy or
scan of the page from diary). My diary doesn't have alarm, so I still have to use my alarm-clock or
mobile phone (OpenOffice.org doesn't have e-mail too ;-). But I like it, my diary is simple, works
and fulfills my needs.
There can be tools and methods that are more efficient than my current approach, so I keep on trying
new stuff. But I always have to delete action item from my paper diary after I try it.
I think that calendar application can only be useful if connected with mail client. Inviting someone
else to some meeting should be done via mail. Rejecting or accepting the meeting should also be done
via mail. Otherwise you'll have another "activity" once you reach the network (read calendar
events/...). I already do read my mail, I already do read several websites. Why yet another similar
Who will be the first to get it and
get it right?
... looks like I have got a lot of free time today ;-)
