Woo Calendar

Hi everyone,

I'm interested in collating a list of major woo websites here in NZ. Part of my reasoning is that I love to visit nonsense talks, lectures, workshops, etc in the Wellington area, and as there's no centralised calendar where these "alternative" meetings are advertised I'd like to make one and share it online. The kind of woo I'm looking at can be seen at the following websites:

If anyone can add any sites they know of where New Zealand based nonsense is peddled and where people may post about upcoming meetings (cryptids, UFOs, faith healers, etc would be good), then please respond to this post and let me know the URLs you have.

Cheers,

mark.

I could add a couple of new content types. One to list the various woo sites, their agenda, some tags etc. The other to list their events etc. I'll give us a central location to gather this info together. Also with some constructive SEO we may even get found by people looking for this stuff.

Gold, that would be great.

Gold, that would be great. Are there any event plugins for Drupal that would make it easy, or are the content types in Drupal flexible enough to allow us to display weekly/monthly calendar views, allow RSS calendar subscriptions, offer caldav downloads, etc?

Drupal can handle all of this

Drupal can handle all of this out of the box (+CCK and Views)

So... out of the box with the extra free DLC.

I just found a bumper crop of nonsense:

I might have to write a script to scan each site and see which ones are still up and running, as several seem to be down (thankfully!).

I found some more nonsense

I found some more nonsense listed on the same NZSearch site, in a different category:

I'm thinking we could turn these into sources for a Fishbarrel game. :) Small scores for submission, bonuses for results. :)

Sounds like fun - I'll have

Sounds like fun - I'll have another poke through the FishBarrel code, maybe talk with the original author, and see if we can maybe get access to the statistics for FishBarrel users that post NZ complaints. I'm envisaging a tick a box in FishBarrel so that people can authorise sharing of their info.
