I was thinking about what Stevie said at the meeting, he said something about an events page that when you visit it the first thing you see is today's event. How about this: make posting events work very similarly to making posts in tumblr. Except you have to fill in a form with the date of the event also. The 'events page' would look like a blog showing all events dated today or in the future
Way ahead of you
I've already built blocks that list this week's events and this week's workshop, showing title, date, and location. We can do things like pull in a picture of the location too, a thumbnail of the event poster, and so on. This is ready to go right now. All we need to figure out is where to place them, what order to put the elements in, which extra pieces of data we want and so on.
Like I tried to say in the meeting, whipping up this sort of thing in Drupal is *fast*
