Elegant Online Calendaring

The scenario: the University has two online calendar options. One of them is Oracle-based and quite robust but does not play nicely with other applications, so you can’t embed live calendar views into other web sites. The other is a portal tool that has little functionality, and looks bad enough that you wouldn’t want to embed a view of it into your web site even if you could!
So…where to turn?
Fortunately, Google does it again! Below is a view of a calendar I’ve set up for the University CSS workgroup that I help administer. Elegant, attractive, easy to work with, and collaborative.
