Lisa Hirsch's Classical Music Blog.
The iron tongue of midnight hath told twelve. Lovers, to bed; 'tis almost fairy time.
Opinions expressed on this blog are mine and not my employer's.
I think it's a thoughtful touch! And useful! Quite a few people -- even those with blackberries, smart phones, etc -- still use a paper calendar as well, even if it's just as a back-up. (Paper calendars won't crash, and won't disappear into the digital ether.) If you look at the constantly increasing number of wall calendars sold, I think it's reasonable to assume that people still use them, and not just as decoration.
The title for this blog posting was almost "If I Put These on My Calendar, I Can't See the Monitor." :)
That is a very comical title, but in the rush to download/upload/twitter/facebook/blog/whatever-the-newest-thing-is, it is easy to forget that a lot of the symphony audience isn't completely digital.
Wall calendars still sell very well. These stickers are perfect for those.(I still use a paper datebook myself. Much more convenient than any computerized form, and I've tried several.)
Donna and I find Google Calendar indispensable because we can see each other's schedules from our own. I have a smart phone, so Calendar extremely convenient.
I can imagine couples whose mutual schedules together are complex enough that they need that. B. and I share the relevant parts of our schedules by writing them on a wall calendar in our kitchen. But in our case, aside from the rare family visit or trip together, the relevant parts are mostly "Will you be home for dinner?", and if that changes at the last minute, cell phone is far superior, because it rings and you don't need to remember to check it.
Wall calendar won't work for us - we are so often NOT home when we need access to the "where are you?" question, especially when I go to so many concerts.
