Event Management with Google Calendar

I mentioned Evite earlier, as I get an occasional gallery showing announcement through their online invitation and event management feature set. Just this week, I received an invitation with a similar purpose through Google's calendar product. Like many of the Google solutions, this one came labeled BETA, but it was interesting for me to see.

"RR Anderson Automatic Drawings Show" was the title for a showing on May 17th. What makes it more than an email notification was the RSVP function. "Will you attend?" is the bottom most text with "yes no maybe" choices. It is my assumption that it will automatically load the date into your Google calendar.

I am in Washington, DC at the time but would love to have gone to the event.

Hello sir, my art show is scheduled for May 17th! You still have plenty of time :)

LOL. I really would like to go. But I have already committed to 9th District Day in DC, which means I'm gone on May 17th.

Gotcha, well the show will be up for awhile perhaps you can stop by the Mineral and pick up an antler necklace for the Mrs.

Excellent. I saw the blog and the picture on those. I suppose a real one would be improper and heavy. My wife just got me a T-Town tee shirt, so I am due for some type of pay back.
