You can now add Techmeme's events list to your own calendar

Wed, 20 May 2015 14:03:17 -0400

As tech news events and industry conferences proliferate, Techmeme's events calendar has become an ever more vital resource for all sorts of technology professionals. Previously available only on the web, it's now available in iCalendar format, letting you automatically keep your Google, Apple, Outlook.com, or Yahoo calendar in sync. Moreover, any calendar software that lets you subscribe via iCalendar URLs should be compatible. It bears explaining that Techmeme actually offers two calendars. There's the "newsy" events list shown on our front page. These are the events we expect to produce news on Techmeme. And then there's the complete list that includes many of the bigger industry events that are national or international in scope. Naturally, it contains all the events in the newsy list, and many more. We offer iCalendar URLs for both the newsy and the complete calendar, letting you subscribe to whichever based on how many events you desire.How to add Techmeme's events to your calendar To keep your calendar in sync with Techmeme's events, first copy one of these two URLs: http://techmeme.com/newsy_events.ics (for newsy events)http://techmeme.com/events.ics (for all events) Then add depending on your calendar. Some popular ones:Google Calendar: find "Other calendars" on the left and click the arrow button to the right, click "Add by URL", paste URL into the "URL" box, then click "Add Calendar".Apple Calendar: click "File" menu, click "New Calendar Subscription…", paste URL in "Calendar URL" box, click "Subscribe", change "Auto-refresh" to "Every day", click "OK".Outlook.com calendar: click "Import" along the top, click "Subscribe" on the left, paste URL into the "Calendar URL" box, enter "Techmeme events" in "Calendar name" box, click "Subscribe".Yahoo Calendar: find "Actions" menu just above your calendar, click "Follow Other Calendars", enter "Techmeme events" in the top box, paste URL into "iCal Address" box, click "Continue".What will Techmeme's events look like in my calendar? Techmeme represents events as all-day events in the iCalendar format we publish. So a one-day event from 9am-5pm will be represented as an all-day event, and a three-day conference will be represented as an event spanning three full days. Although all-day events lack hourly precision, most people will appreciate this choice, as it keeps Techmeme's events nicely corralled in the all-day event area hovering above your daily schedule and not competing visually with your personal calendar events. But there is one small gotcha: because events are listed by the date in the time zone in which they're held, confusion can result for users in the Americas referring to events in Asia-Pacific time zones, and vice versa. For example, if you live in the U.S. and it's the 24th there, an event listed as taking place on the 24th in Sydney actually occurred the day before. Likewise, if you live in Hong Kong and it's the 12th, a California-based event listed for the 12th won't happen until the following day for you. So be advised if you're keeping close watch on events happening on the other side of the international date line.Interested in adding your event to Techmeme's calendar? If our calendar is missing a major tech event, please let us know at events -at- [site domain] and we'll see what we can do. Q: Will you ever sell extended versions of these lists and make a ton of money? A: We might, but no, we won't make a ton a money that way. Q: Is it weird that the #1 author by Leadership is a full-time college undergrad? A: Maybe, but he sure does get a lot of scoops. Q: Why is Gigaom listed in the publication leaderboards? Didn't it shut down? A: It ceased operations less than 90 days ago so it's still among the top publications in the 90-day window on which the leaderboards are based. It will fall off completely in a few weeks. Q: I am not a blogger or publisher so why should I care about these lists? A: If you ever wish to influence the tech news media, you'll find these are good people to court. But if you haven't figured that out already, y[...]
