Event Coordination

by Arwen O'Reilly Griffith

Gina Trapani at LifeHacker posted about a cool-sounding new collaborative event organizer. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds like it's perfect for everything from organizing your monthly poker night to setting up business meetings.

Here's Gina's writeup: "Fasterplan lets groups collaborate on planning events by hammering out the details on a dynamic "billboard." Set up a Fasterplan billboard for your event and drag and drop widgets onto it—like polls ("Where should we eat afterwards?"), date finders ("When's good for you?"), images, and text notes. Get your event billboard's permalink and email it out to all your friends to answer the polls and plan your get-together."
