Google Calendar Plug In

37 Votes

A simple widget/plug-in with the ability to interface with other widgets on the open source platform, enabling the end user to add anything to their personal calendar seamlessly. For example, if there is an upcoming community meeting published in a forum, or a sale at a local shop, or even a happy hour, this plug-in would allow users to click a logo (much like T, FB, and others are embedded on pages currently) that would then populate the calendar with the corresponding information.

A map-based widget that shows all the places around your defined geographic area that you can borrow, rent, swap, recycle, donate, and repair items. This would include all tool libraries, swap & plays, Goodwills and second hand stores, repair shops, and recycling depots. A directory with ideas for waste prevention, reuse and resourcefulness would also be helpful.
