List upcoming events on google calendar

google calendar list --date `date --date="next thursday" +%Y-%m-%d`
Requires googlecl (http://code.google.com/p/googlecl/) Even better when you wrap this in a script and allow the --date=STRING to be $1. Then you can type: whatson "next Thursday" The date string for UNIX date is very flexible. You can also add --cal "[regex]" to the end for multiple calendars.

is this an alias for something else? To the best of my knowledge there is no google calendar list command ;)

There is a calendar list command. Take a look at the example scripts: http://code.google.com/p/googlecl/wiki/ExampleScripts
