Events with Maps!
I’ve been playing with this for a while now, and it’s finally ready for you to play with too. Not saying it’s perfect yet, but what’s a few bugs between friends? We are friends, correct? When you go to the events page, you can now find events on the world map for the next 45 days. I think it’s cool.
Here’s how it works. The events come from bands that are my friends on MySpace.com. I get their calendar off MySpace every night, and convert them into events that I can post on a Google Maps page. You can find bands playing within your area, or set the radius to “ALL” and see all the concerts. You can also filter it down to one band, or all.
More work needs to be done to link the events and the CatholicJukebox.com directory and even the radio station together, but we continue to make strides.
