Manchester Activist Calendar?
« on: July 17, 2012, 03:16:35 PM »
Is there a Manchester Liberty Activist Calendar similar to the Keene Liberty Activist Calendar?

Not that I've ever heard of. 

I hear Manchester has activism, but how people are supposed to find out about it, I have no clue.  FreeManch.com is now going on three months without a single post.

This forum is probably the best place of anywhere.

Pretty much all the Manchester activity is on Facebook, and there is a lot of it. Much of it is broken into groups, so you can pick which stuff you're interested in. Of course, that means being on FB as well as discovering all of the various groups/pages.

A lot of Manchie stuff is on Facebook.  A lot of done word of mouth.  Some is even done via email.

Here are 4 of the 6 Manchie FB groups I know of. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2204983906/doc/10150550837878907/
Excellent advice for those considering moving to the Keene area

Hopefully a little encouragement will get those Manchies over here.  I have made an event to remind them that there are activists outside facebook than they can connect with here.  Please feel free to share it.

I'm trying to be more active on the forums rather than FB. It's quite a chore to try to list all the FB events on other places on a continuous basis, needless to say. I've only started to learn programming but someday I dream of making a liberty social site that straddles FB and forums. More privacy and less bullshit apps(unlike FB) but also better usability for events in particular (unlike forums). I know I'm not the only one who's had this thought, it's just kind of an ambitious project.

Much of what you describe sounds like Google Calendar.  You can now integrate FB events into Google Calendar.  Ian explains it here, http://forum.shiresociety.com/social-events-volunteering-other-activism-discussion/how-to-use-the-calendar/

Forget Google calendar!! There is now Porc Calendar: porccalendar.com

I added a handful of events, and will try to do that regularly. It's pretty user-friendly.

The advantage of Facebook events is that they aren't visible to the public. This forum and that calendar can be viewed by virtually anyone.

Sometimes that's an advantage, sometimes not.

Too bad Porccalendar is defunct.  I thought it was very user friendly.  It would be nice to have another place besides FB to post events.

There's little point in paying to compete with Facebook.

It says the site is being overhauled and will be back within a month.
