My iPhone calendar does rule. But I still markup an Ansel Adams wall calendar that lives over my kitchen sink for big picture clarity while, I admit, mainly using the Sierra Club wilderness and appointment calendars for pretty.
I’m with HSF—I use a paper calendar for big picture stuff, and for scheduling my blog posts. Sometimes the limitations of a screen just don’t work for me. But I totally use my google calendar for the daily schedules.
I haven't used a paper calendar for quite a while. I have Google calendars. My wife is more of a paper calendar person but shared digital calendars make it easier of us to stay in sync with ours and our kids schedules so she is a somewhat reluctant convert.
With growing grade school kids having paper calendars around is good for learning about how to read/use calendars.

I think part of my hesitancy to fully commit electronically is I’m rather focused on my iPhone rather than my laptop or iPads so the month wide display is a little too opaque (simply has a dot under dates where there’s something). That lack of detail in the wider view just isn’t that functional for me when laying out plans.

My life is pretty uncomplicated. I use a paper calendar to record road trips, backpacking days, music events, birthdays and dates. I don't have a day-to-day accounting. I have calendars going back to 1980 in a box. Which calendar I choose is usually dictated by what's available. They're always an outdoor scene with mountains, forests or deserts. No beaches.
It occurs to me these are quite a bit like my iPhone or Garmin maps versus my topo map sheets. Similarly complimentary in their functionality, tight focus versus wide angle.
Even down to the paper calendar, like a topo sheet: completely silent on that where the hell am I aspect. Whereas the iPhone calendar has that handy location indicator, the gps of time. 😎
I had much the same thought as I was about to click on this link, though I hadn’t worked out the details you got . Got the big-picture/little-picture thing, but didn’t think about that “where am I?” I mostly use my phone for that, but not the calendar—just wake it up and look at the day/date.
