You've probably seen a number of communities and groups inworld use Google Calendar to show at a glance what events they'll be having. Linden Lab has used it themselves in the past to show when smaller events in the Second Life Birthday are. There's been some requests to the Lab over time that they could use a calendar full time to show when their events are. And on Thursday, they announced on the official blog that they were with the Second Life Public Calendar.
To check out the calendar, head to second.life/calendar. One doesn't have to login to Google. "You can additionally use this ICAL feed link to add it to your own personal calendar. You can also click the +GoogleCalendar icon on the bottom right of the web calendar to add it to your Google Calendar. Or, copy over individual events that you are interested in by clicking on the event and click 'copy to my calendar.'"
The calendar already shows a number of events. Besides the weekly events such as the Simulator User Group meetings and Second Life Book Club, there are special ones such as the opening of the Lab's Winter Wonderland area on December 1 and the Linden Snowball Fight on December 18. For some reason, there are no "Lab Gab" events planned.
The Lab says the calendar will be updated frequently, and asks that any errors be reported to Strawberry Linden, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
