One question that’s come up repeatedly is whether a unified calendar combining all the relevant business and/or technology (and/or creative) community could be created — and to a large extent it already has.  In fact there are at least two calendars that include the bulk of events we expect our audience will be most interested in.  

New Mexico Business Calendar
Our friends at Finance New Mexico have the most robust, statewide and searchable calendar for New Mexico business interests currently online, and we (and other tech associations) will be using it more.  If you haven’t seen it recently, please visit them at:  http://bizcalendar.org/ 

New Mexico Tech Calendar
A grassroots collaborative effort in Albuquerque created a shared/open Google Calendar to capture the variety of developer, designer, and web related community events going on in the Albuquerque area. It’s easily shared and embedded, but underused at the moment – though there are efforts underway to re-energize this effort. Find it at:

New Mexico Technology Council
The Tech Council’s calendar is also online, providing the back end here and also available directly. We also offer ‘Open Office Hours’ with our Executive Director, Eric Renz-Whitmore in Albuquerque, Los Alamos and Santa Fe. For those using Google Calendar, visit http://bit.ly/technorthofficehours and click on the grey block for your preferred time.  Simply add your name – and any additional information you like – to the block.

Standard Open Office Hours are:
Albuquerque:  Tuesdays 9:00 – 10:30 AM (Downtown Flying Star)
Los Alamos:  Wednesdays 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM (Starbucks on Central – Or Suggest a Coffee Shop!)
Santa Fe: Fridays 9:30 – 11:00 AM (Santa Fe Complex)
