Thanks for the reading.  I'll check it out on my commute today.

I can't figure out why calDAV isn't more utilized.  Interoperability
of things like business card and contact sharing has really taken off,
but for any business or organization that has scheduled events (i.e.
nearly all of them) it seems ... weird that calDAV isn't more front
and center in an age where nearly half the US population has some kind
of smart phone.   Heck, even LUGOD could benefit by exporting a
calendar listing all meetings, installfests, one-off events, etc.
It's a way of pushing information to a target group rather than
requiring them to pull information (e.g. going to a website and
obtaining the info themselves).  It's right there on their phones.
Even things like event cancellations become less onerous.
