Upcoming.org is a social event calendar, completely driven by people like you. Manage your events, share events with friends and family, and syndicate your calendar to your own site.

Note to self: add to that: Upcoming.org is now a part of Yahoo!

Another great concept for the web was snatched up by one of the big guys. Yahoo!’s been on a buying spree lately. Wanna make some fast cash???? Quick… start a ‘Web 2.0? company, build an app on Ruby on Rails, and build up a lot of hype around it. Yahoo! or one of the other major players will be around to buy you in no time! ;)

All joking aside… congrats to the Upcoming.org team. It’ll be interesting to see what they’ll be able to accomplish now with the support of Yahoo!
