Actually, this is the use cases for two apps, spendingstories.org (the
calendar) and mapthemoney.org (the CSO map), but we were discussing
merging them to avoid further confusion. I think we'll begin with the
basic calendar almost as a blog and then add semantics as we discover
them - so the question there is just what the simplest calendar app
looks like. We also have a lot of the contact information for "related
groups" already in GDocs, so this will probably end up as a speedy
GDocs-to-Map thing in the first instance.
