I put up a Virtual Events Calendar on this blog in 2009. Back then, it was fairly easy to know (and find) the majority of virtual events that were being produced in the U.S. But my, how the industry has grown! I kept the calendar fairly up to date in 2009 and 2010, but as we head further into 2011, I’m finding it harder to keep the calendar current.
So keeping with the trends we’re seeing across the web today, I decided to move the calendar to a wiki, which allows anyone to add their virtual event(s) to the calendar.
Sure, this can lead to spam and promotion, but as we saw with Wikipedia, a workable wiki requires an active community of “editors” to keep things on track. As such, I’ll be checking to make sure the calendar doesn’t get spammed – and I hope some of you join me to assist in “checks and balances”.
Without further ado, you can find the wiki style virtual events calendar at:
