Event Category Sharing
I am doing a calendar with 7 event categories, which for posting to a website is great, so I can put the full calendar in some places, and just the categories I want in others.

Some people will want to subscribe on their phones or personal calendars to specific categories, but not others. Is there a way to offer each category as a different Ical link so they can add the ones they want without having to see them all?

Re: Event Category Sharing
Not presently.. but there is an indirect way to do this.
Have a look at this member's calendar:
http://www.coolcitydogs.com/ (click "training/event calendar on left menu)

The way they accomplished something similar was to create 6 separate calendars (one for each 'category') and then merge them into the single master view you see on that site.

That way, each 'sub' calendar has its own RSS & iCal url which can be subscribed to (you can publish these all separately on your site)

The only calendar that needs a premium subscription is the master view. The rest can all use the free service.
