This week, Apple released their free calendar app, iCal. I'm not going to review it, but I would like to discuss my favorite feature: publishing. Essentially, you can make a calendar available for subscription via the web and people can download your calendar, be it a concert schedule or your daily routine, into their calendar. Endless possibilites.

I was hoping someone would be able to incorporate this into Movable Type. It happened much more quickly than I thought. Morbus Iff created a template to export your calendar to iCal and Ben, one of the cofounders of MT, created an AppleScript to export your calendar to the web. I will have to implement this very soon.

What I'd really like to see is a website that allows people to post their calendars for all to see. It would be like a yahoo directory of iCal calendars, so that people could find tons of things to subscribe to. I would love to do this if someone wanted to help. Any takers?
