I've added a web analytics calendar to my web site

Some folks have noticed but thanks to Google Calendar I’ve added a Web 2.0 web analytics events calendar to my web site. I’m still looking around for the API to see if I can instrument it for measurement the same way I did the Web Analytics Wednesday Google Map. Even if there is no API that provides me good hooks into the application (it’s called via an IFRAME) I have a few ideas.
Anyway, if you have a web analytics event that you’d like added to this calendar please let me know. All I need is the event name, the date, the time, a description and a URL or email address to point people to. I’m pretty sure I can generate a RSS feed from the calendar so a new feed of web analytics events cannot be far behind.
