If I share a calendar with someone else and we end up with clashing events, how can I tell who "got there first"?

There's no way to do that via the web interface. If you're happy to get down and dirty with the the Calendar Data API, then you can get the creation and last-modified timestamps from any event in any of the calendars you're subscribed to.

The date published flag is the answer. The quick and dirty way to get the info is to enter

https://www.google.com/calendar/feeds/[username]@gmail.com/private/full

and do a Ctrl+F to find the event you need. The date published flag is only a couple of tags back.

You can locate the date created and date modified for an event by examining the .ics file for the calendar with a text editor. Download the .ics file for your calendar from calendar.google.com > Settings > Calendar > Calendar

Sounds like you need to detect a "date created" flag of some kind. I see a "date published" flag in the Calendar API docs, referring to the .xml format of calender entries. I would go and examine the developer API docs.
