Comments

please put all the dates under one post, and list what you are doing during each event with its separate date. it is confusing looking at all the dates as separate events instead of one event with all the dates.

Hi there. I'm a little unclear on what you have in mind, but this is a feed from our calendar software, so unfortunately there's isn't much room for customization. However, you can click on the "click here for calendar view" link at the top of the feed and go directly to the calendar where you can filter the search to fit your needs.

How do we find out about the events from Sept. 22 to Sept. 30? Like the Wired Weekend.

Hi there. Click on "click here for calendar view" at the top of the page to see more entries. We limit the list to 25, otherwise it just gets too long.
