Sched.org Takes on CCI
San Diego's Comic-Con International is coming up July 21-25. There's so much going on, it's triple-extra impossible to fit everything of interest into your schedule.
But at least you can maintain some sense of organization amidst the chaos with Sched.org. The startup is bringing its incredibly useful calendaring web app to the massive comic book and fandom convention. Find it at sched.comic-con.org.
Build a personalized agenda by picking panels, movies and parties from a master schedule of everything that's going on. Create a free account and get a unique URL you can share with your friends. Sched also looks great and performs well on iPhones and other mobiles. There are maps to help you find everything, too.
Originally created by programmers Chirag Mehta and Taylor McKnight, Sched first popped onto our radar at SXSWi 2008, where the app gained a lot of traction. The simple calendar has remained a geek favorite at big events — they've done CMJ, Sasquatch, The Next Web and Black Hat, among others. Most users prefer it because the Sched guys list both official and unofficial events on the calendar, and because there's a social sharing feature that lets you see which parties and events are the most popular and which ones your friends are attending.
Check out Sched's dedicated site for Comic-Con, and check back often, as the schedule will be updated continuously.
