This is a classic case of history repeating itself, and it cracked me up. Lately I've been jotting things down in Google Calendar after-the-fact, as a way for me to historically mark days or events as having happened for future reference. Before this, I had been taking the traditional (or at least I think it's traditional) approach of adding things to my calendar that were still forthcoming at the time. Tonight, I was thinking about how adding things to my calendar after-the-fact almost seemed like a really stripped-down version of blogging. Then I thought to myself..."calendar blogging"..."calendar + blogging"..."clogging!"

At that moment in time I thought, "I should really blog this" (in the traditional place, of course), but decided to do a quick check via Google just to be sure. The first link that popped up for a search for 'calendar blogging' was Calendar Blogging - Clogging, an article written by a German by the name of Matthew Langham back in 2002.

And here I was thinking I was being all ingenuitive and stuff.

Ha, this is nuts. Having gotten an editable ICS calendar running on my Ubuntu box through Lightning/Thunderbird, I've been doing the same thing. I'll look forward to see what you're doing with it.
