Experiences and Experiments in Programming

Jeff just posted some information about Google Calendar so I went and took a look. I like it!  Unlike Jeff, I typically use Thunderbird.

One of the things I fight with is centralizing my information and access to it. My time is spent between  client locations, remote locations, home, and the office. Granted, I use a laptop so I can carry some stuff around with me, but even on my laptop I have multiple profiles. I have tried a lot of things: portable applications that you carry on thumb drives, online file storage, sites like BackPack.  Some I like, some I don't.  The problem is that I have not found that silver bullet.  Maybe it is not out there.  But as many of us developers as there are, that I would like to think have the same problem and feel the same way, you would think one or more of us would have forged that silver bullet by now.  I am watching Live.com to see if through its extensibility and gadgets, it might get close.

Back to Google Calendar...what would be cool is if they release a developer interface.  I think it would be really nice to be able to integrate your own web site or application with their calendar.  I could see some really cool Atlas apps and Live.com plugins that would behave similarly to Outlook Web Access without using Outlook.  In the mean time, another new online toy.
