I think this is what you may be looking for, they are already looking at possible solutions:

Subject: Re: [Ayatana] Extending functionality for the time&date indicator


    Come on guys , 5 days on a 700 strong mailing list (but I guess
    that's not really the number) , at least someone should be
    interested in having some annotation/event functionalities on the
    calendar . That'll be my last post promoting it , but come on ...
    maybe ayatana needs promoting:? // 


    (from Brainstorm , http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/28647/ ,
    Solution #7 )


    A big panel calendar with simple
      events/notes :

    Now , I envision it as being one of the super handy things that
    Ubuntu has , so bare with me . I've always had trouble keeping track
    of my daily notes, but I'm frequently around the computer .So when
    I'm on the computer I want to be able to easily check what the
    notes/events for the day are and to check them or add more (for any
    of the upcoming days) .The most handy thing to have is to click on
    the calendar , which will drop a two-thirds-of-the-screen type of
    panel (picture : http://dl.dropbox.com/u/42681910/Calendar%20blueprint.png
    ) , that has the calendar , and in each cell (representing a day)
    there could be events/notes , that are readable as soon as you
    expand the applet (and everything hides on Esc or click on the
    indicator) . I think no other OS has anything similar . So to add an
    event or to edit one - just click on the cell .

    An addition to the idea is to have the cell ,that's clicked on,
    expand (makes it more usable when there's many events/notes) as
    shown in the picture.


    What I've drawn is pretty bad , but I guess you could imagine a
    better coloured version with some transparency and some simple
    open-animation .


    Importing/exporting with a mail client and/or Ubuntu One will make
    the integration complete and enable syncing with other devices
    through the already existing systems.


    Best regards ,
