localendar.com – Free Online Calendars

This is a great free calendar that you can add to your website.

Make Your Life Easier with Localendar

localendar was designed from the ground-up to help people organize their busy lives. We’ve been hosting free calendars for individuals, groups, clubs, and corporations for over 13 years. You can visit localendar to check & edit your calendar, or you can link to it from your own website.

We’re here to help you manage your appointments and events and to let you share them with a wider audience (if you choose).

When you add an event to your calendar, you indicate whether it is “public” or “private”. If it’s public, then the zip-code and category of the event can be entered. This gives us a database of local information from the best source: local people! Our searchable index of published events lets people find out what’s happening in their neighborhood.

– Do you have an event you want people to know about? Sign up for your free calendar and publish the dates

– Keep track of your private meetings and functions, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

– Have each family member maintain a calendar and merge them into a single, master view

– Add a community calendar to your web page

Kickstarter

I stumbled upon this website the other day and think its a great idea to help small business start up.

Click here to see how lots of pop up shops have been funded

Heres what its about.

Seven things to know about Kickstarter:

1. Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects.

We’re a home for everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of projects, big and small, that are brought to life through the direct support of people like you. Since our launch in 2009, more than 4.7 million people have pledged over $776 million, funding more than 48,000 creative projects. Thousands of creative projects are raising funds on Kickstarter right now.

2. Each project is independently created.

The filmmakers, musicians, artists, and designers you see on Kickstarter have complete control over and responsibility for their projects. Kickstarter is a platform and a resource; we’re not involved in the development of the projects themselves. Anyone can launch a project on Kickstarter as long as it meets our guidelines.

3. Together, creators and backers make projects happen.

Project creators set a funding goal and deadline. If people like a project, they can pledge money to make it happen. Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing — projects must reach their funding goals to receive any money. All-or-nothing funding might seem scary, but it’s amazingly effective in creating momentum and rallying people around an idea. To date, an impressive 44% of projects have reached their funding goals.

Cargo Collective

Here is some information about a great website which is a market place for graphic designers, artists, photographers etc

The Cargo Culture

For the last few years Cargo’s main goal has been to create accessible tools and a networked context to enhance the exposure of talented individuals on the Internet.

To achieve this, we offer our users free-standing websites; a wide variety of customizable templates; simple but sophisticated tools to control the way their content is displayed, and a unique user interface built entirely around the work shared by our members who are connected through the Cargo network.

Today, thanks to the consistent quality of the work presented here, we like to think of Cargo as a creative community participating in a constantly evolving visual culture, defined by the exceptional content that finds its way here.

Cargo Gallery
From the beginning, Cargo has attracted some of the most talented individuals now posting their work online, as can be seen in this constantly updated exhibition of the images we love. All work featured here has been found across the network by the Cargo team. Visit the GalleryBy Invite Only
To maintain the highest possible degree of quality, Cargo memberships are restricted by an Invite Only policy that is mediated by account holders, each of whom can invite 5 new members. (Note: we occasionally award memberships to unaffiliated talents who share a sample of their work.)
