Sounds fair, and I am. Who else is in?
I think the way to approach it is to attempt to put together a super-comprehensive list of all events (this is not the actual calendar for the public; it's the internal checklist), and then for each one, find a contact, talk to them about being in the calendar, talk to them about linking back to the calendar from their site, and about talking to their own meetup, yes? Finding out from them where they publish details of their event is important here -- if they, say, put them on meetup, then that goes into our "need to extract these details from meetup.com's API" list, etc.
In parallel with this, someone with design skills could do a little badge/button which goes on everyone's website and says "we're in the [what ever] calendar", but we need a name first
