I’m doing the Weekend Report on WLCA now. I’m only making it to WLCA on Fridays now, but Sunday nights I compile some of the weekend’s more important news, entertainment news, give a small review of SNL, and read off the top 5 movies at the box office. I’m trying to keep the reports between 2 and 3 minutes and have been successful thus far. I’d like to implement more sound effects, soundbites, and music into the report in order to spice it up a bit. So far it has been just me talking, and I know that can get boring. I haven’t had as much time as I’d like to really make these reports pop. Hopefully this coming Sunday I’ll be able to create something that is much better.

I found a great online calendar that uses AJAX called 30 Boxes. It seems to be a calendar program I’ll actually use, and it has a great, easy-to-use interface. It has a great “buddy” method of adding other 30 Boxes users and integrating your calendar with theirs while still giving you the option to only view your own calendar, or only view their calendar. You can also invite people to events on your calendar. I tried Airset, and while it can send you text messages to remind you of events, I simply don’t like the interface. 30 Boxes will be rolling out even more features in the weeks to come.
