Share your thoughts: Calendar links and the Golden Kitty Awards survey

It’s been a while since we’ve seen this much discourse on Tech Twitter. Last week, Calendly took the spotlight as the most discussed product. It felt somewhat reminiscent of the 2015 “The Dress” viral phenomenon (is it blue or gold?!) dividing the Internet, except this time, the debate was focused on the question of "is sending a calendar link rude?"

The discussion stems from a post by former Facebook VP, Sam Lessin, arguing that Calendly is “The Most Raw / Naked Display of Social Capital Dynamics in Business.” The Twitter crowd can’t really agree on a consensus either: some shared a satirical response, while others offered up alternative products.

The Calendly team has been addressing concerns like these through a Calendly Etiquette series they started last November.

Still, if you side with Lessin or are just looking for an alternative calendar experience, here are others to check out: is an open-source Calendly alternative that you can self-host and integrate into your business. It's also launching for web3 today. 👀
