When Is Good is Good for 'When?'

When is Good is a great tool for coordinating schedules for a specific event, i.e. getting multiple people to indicate 'when is a good time for X?'

The sequence is simple

1) the organizer specifies a span of time/dates within which other 'attendees' will choose
2) the organizer supplies their email address
3) the organizer is sent a URL for distribution to attendees
4) attendees specify their own preferred times within the prescribed span
5) the organizer sees an aggregate view of all chosen times

What is so incredibly refreshing is that it

a) does not require everybody create accounts
b) only the meeting organizer need share their own email address
c) nary a mention of 'friends' or 'buddies'.
