Google Calendar Launches Public Calendar Directory

Philipp Lenssen reports that Google Calendar has added a gallery of public calendars that users can subscribe to.

The directory is cataloged by Top Picks, TV shows, Events, Sports, Entertainment, Miscellaneous, Holidays and By Google. Wouldn’t it be nice if the By Google category showed scheduled Google Search updates?

After you click on the calendar, it will pop open a preview of the calendar, you can then choose if you would like to subscribe to that calendar or not. There are more details on the gallery over here, plus if you want to make your calendar public, you can learn how over here.
