It was great meeting so many bay area steampunks at Nova Albion.  Espana and I talked about coordinating our google calendars.  Here is my recently updated Northern California Steampunk Calendar:  NORCalendar

 

Please let me know what upcoming events of interest to Steampunks need to be added to it.

Euphrenia,

I can give you a ride to Nova Albion from San Francisco.

 

Comment by Euphrenia McGee on March 24, 2011 at 5:43pm

Is there anyone driving to Nova Albion from (or through) San Francisco on Saturday morning who has room for an additional body (one that will help with the gasoline, of course)? I'd be deeply grateful for a ride if so.

 

Thank you!

Comment by España Sheriff on March 24, 2011 at 3:29pm

Yeah, it has also been built up over several years which helps. I have several hundred pinboard (Delicious, originally) bookmarks I check.

 

I will definitely pop by on Saturday, thanks :)

Espana - I will be hosting in the Steam Federation/Sacramento Steampunk Society party salon (room 303/305) from 9-11 Saturday night.  Come by and we can talk.

I will next week, once I've updated it.  Your Calendar is LOADED with events - that must take a LOT of work.
Comment by España Sheriff on March 24, 2011 at 2:26pm

Oh, can you share the link to you Google Calendar so I can add it?

 

The SF/SF calendar is of course more general, but all steampunk events are of course included. It can be found either at the end of each issue of the zine itself (efanzines.com/SFSF), on twitter @sfsfcalendar or at the link below;

This lack of a central bulletin board has been an ongoing problem.  Several people have attempted to address it by creating websites, but after an initial flurry they end up inactive because the groups who should be utilizing them to get the word out about their events don't support them, and it takes a HUGE amount of time for one person to search out all of the events on a couple of dozen individual group or little-used public sites and announce them on a central site. 

 

I created a Northern California Google Calendar last year, but it is now in neglect and not at all up to date.  I'm hoping to find time to update it in the next week or two, and will distribute links to it once it has current content.  If something is posted on one group's google calendar - it is really easy to import it into another calendar - so I encourage steamy groups to use Google Calendars.  It is also possible to allow multiple managers for a single calendar which could spread the work of maintenance over more people. 

 

Please note that the Steam Federation (Bay Area Steampunk Association) on Facebook gets a fair number of announcements on their wall, as does the Sacramento Steampunk Society (also on Facebook). 

 

Note that the Nova Albion Convention is in Santa Clara this weekend, Never Was Haul is having a special fundraising event in conjunction with that on Saturday night, and Abney Park will be playing in the SF area the weekend after.

Well, I myself am just posting events relevant to the group that I've added to the @sfsfcalendar but I would love to see a localized calendar/events group.

 

The layout of the group pages doesn't seem the best place for it, but the events page itself doesn't have geographical sorting, maybe we can request tags or something?

 

 

Comment by Matthew Nash on March 24, 2011 at 7:55am
How can we get the word out earlier on upcoming S.F.Steamevents? I seem to be missing them all by a day. Is there any way to set up a spot where all of the Bay Area groups that sponsor events can post them in one spot? I guess that should be here but how do we get the word to the co-ordinators?
