Calendaring News: I haven't blogged about this in a while, so here's what's up.

  • The CALSIFY WG met at the last IETF for the first time. We found authors to revise the iCalendar suite of standards (RFC2445, 2446 and 2447). We're meeting in November in Vancouver to discuss progress and open issues on these.
  • The CalDAV proposal for standardizing calendar access (personal, group or public calendars) is going very well. We're very close to a draft we can last-call at the IETF. I'm proud to say that OSAF's Chandler and Cosmo both do some CalDAV and can test basic interoperability with other clients and servers like Sunbird and Oracle's server. I'm demoing some of this at Educause next week.
  • We're starting to think about what extra metadata is needed to do public event calendars well -- for example, good location information. There's a technical committee within CalConnect talking about this, including EVDB/Eventful people.
  • Another new CalConnect committee is discussing the application (and perhaps in some cases, adaptation) of these standards for use on mobile devices.

I can't write as humourously as Stitchy McYarnPants of the Museum of Kitschy Stitches (Vols. I, II, III, IV and V). I'm not as up-to-date as knittykitty of the the You Knit What blog. And even (or especially) my husband thinks I'm the last person to be an authority on this subject. However, I scanned some choice pattern pics from my small collection of "antique" (meaning, completely out of style) knitting and crafting books to give you: What Not to Knit.
