I didn't say Google's calendar wasn't good. I just said Geeklog has a 
calendar up and running on geeklog.net and it was passed over for an 
external calendar. If Geeklog devs ate their own dogfood[1] (as the 
saying goes) they would be a chance they might improve the existing 
calendar plugin. Instead they are using someone else's calendar which 
means the existing plugin will not see any loving. The parts of 
Geeklog that work the best are the parts that the devs use. Here was 
an opportunity to add the calendar plugin to the set of features the 
devs use and they didn't. Thus the calendar plugin will probably 
wither even more than it has.
