Calendars integration online

Hello Folks,

have a question for you...

I am actually developing an on line working platform, and a few of the potential users I surveyed has asked for an on line calendar that could interact and integrate local calendars such as that from Outlook, Thunderbird and so on.

I'm pretty sure something that works like this already exists, but we seem like we cannot find any similar application around the web...

Anyone has any suggestion??

Thank you all,

EULA checkbox variations

Anybody done any testing, or have anecdotal evidence of the best way to
handle the EULA agreement on sign up?
Here are the options that I see:

1) Generally seen version, with checkbox that can produce errors.

| | I agree to the EULA

< Create My Account >

2) No checkbox, but longer button label.

By clicking the button below, I agree to the EULA.

< I Agree. Create My Account.>

3) No check box, with inferred agreement via prior text.

Articles etc on interface structures

Hi guys

I'm writing some workshop material on high-level structures for
interfaces - explaining different high-level patterns that an interface
may use (e.g. linear, two/three panels, canvas plus tools, dashboards etc)

I always like to provide additional reading, but can't find any good
references for this material, except for the Tidwell book. Most pattern
libraries focus on much more granular combinations of components, not
the high-level structure.

Any ideas for articles or references?
