There’s a good article by Michael Sampson in the new issue of Messaging News (pdf file) (you knew such a magazine had to exist, didn’t you?) titled Calendaring – Why Isn’t It Just Like Email?
I particularly like the way Michael quotes Scott Mace to frame the issues:
“In 1997 I wrote an article for InfoWorld on the poor state of calendaring
interoperability,” recalls Scott Mace, currently a freelance author and blogger at Calendar Swamp.
“When I reviewed the situation again in 2005, I was horrified to discover we hadn’t come very far.
We still face the same problems today we did then.”
I’m mentioned in an inconsequential quote, but that’s not why you should read the article. You should read it for the way it lays out the current set of issues and products and the work going on in the calendaring space.
