Esther – We have a lack of standards – would having standards free up resources?
Mitch – it will free up developers from re-inventing the wheel. ICal is fine for representing the data of the event. But when you’re trying to coordinate multiple events among multiple people, that’s the realm that CalDAV and SSE are trying to get into.
Question – is Microsoft a part of the discussions? Ray – Not yet, but he’ll be chatting with Mitch shortly. (Huzzah!)
Raymie – it’s good that people are working toward interoperability of read/write of events, but the next frontier is the kind of things Yori is working on, the social aspects of scheduling and rescheduling.
