Profile Pages, Calendar Feeds and Press

We released some more updates to the site tonight, including profile pages for each person, calendar feeds so that event updates are reflected immediately in your 3rd party calendars, and a press page to highlight the coverage we've been getting over the past few days.

The profile page for each person is something that we've been toying with for a while. We've been attempting to buck the stigma of being another social networking site, and we were afraid that adding profiles would only perpetuate that image. In the end though, we found that having a page which enabled users to view larger profile pictures of friends, along with some additional details, greatly enhanced the usability of the site and allowed users to more easily create events and invite friends.

The calendar feed options that we present now allow you to add in a feed only once to a calendar, and have that automatically updated when changes are made to an event. This way you don't have to keep importing updated events and hassling with attachments.

The press page reflects some of the most popular coverage we've received since we launched last Thursday, along with the press release that we issued, and a print ready version of our logo. You can reach the press page through the "About" link on the main page of the site.

We're working like mad to tailor the site to your needs, so keep the feedback coming!
