Thirty Boxes

I am up way too late, ogling 30 Boxes, thanks to Carl. It's an online calendar application that combines pretty much every web service one can imagine into one interface for a person. I will play with it for a while, but man, this is the coolest non-porn thing I have seen on the internet in a long time.

It just came out today(2/5/2006), and is completely functional. It's lightning-fast, powered by AJAX, and has been written to understand all kinds of syntax for entering dates and items. For instance, I typed, "Boulevard Big Band, 8pm tuesday," and it had no problem figuring it out, and entered the event to the proper date. You can also invite other users to events listed on your calendar. Want an event or appointment to be private? No problem. Just check the "Private?" box. In addition, you can edit an event, and say if it's a recurring event(say, every week).

After adding some buddies, some rss feeds, and some usernames on more popular blog services(livejournal, myspace, webshots, etc), my calendar started to get peppered with links to webpage entries of people in my buddy list, on the days they were entered.

More innovations are on the way, apparently, and I look forward to them. I have sent invitations to a couple of friends, just to see how it is with a multi-user look.

Awesome. Just awesome.

Random Picture:
I stayed at the Alta Cienega Motel at the corner of La Cienega and Santa Monica Blvd, while I was in Los Angeles. This motel, it turns out, is where Jim Morrison lived from 1968 to 1971, and where, coincidentally, can now be found a very inexpensive night's sleep, in the middle of the expensive Hollywood hoopla. I actually called ahead and made a reservation, a behavior that I don't think they are used to at Alta Cienega. But, this foresight landed me a reservation for the room where Morrison lived. Since that time, many many people have stayed there, and paid homage to Jim by writing a memorable quote of Jim Morrison, on any surface they can find, in the room.
