Google has done it again!

If you haven't checked out Google Calendar, DO IT! I'm just amazed. You can export your info from Outlook Calendar, or your PDA (via GooSync) and set up a Google calendar. What's so special about that? Well, for one, you can give family and friends access so they can keep up with your schedule (kids games etc.) AND, if they create their own calendar, there is an option to view their calendar within yours and it's as easy as clicking theirs off and on. Another bonus that I just found is the ability to add other public calendars such as US Holidays, the Netflix new realse schedule, or a Obama's tour schedule. It's all fairly new, so I'm sure in the future we'll have access to all kinds of public calendars. How cool would it be if meetup had the option to put your "yes" rsvps on your google calendar. Now that would be sweet.

Ok, free advertisement for google is over. If any of my family or friends wants access to my calendar, let me know and I'll add you to the list.

Update: After emailing Chris (see comment below) I now have the upgraded version of GooSyc. SCORE! Can't wait to what other cool stuff I can do now! Thanks Chris!
