Even more intriguing.  This may actually be good news.  Cool...

Re: [Ietf-calsify] Re:  Google Speculation, but interesting







I would like to apologize. What I had received from apple is limited and 
did not have any features introduced by iCalendar.  Timezone the way 
iCalendar uses them was introduced by iCalendar.  VCalendar just had an 
offset which was found to be insufficient.

Robert, I've been getting some private emails that say it's based on 
iCalendar.  So, now I'm intrigued.  iCalendar is also based on vCalendar 
as well.  I'd really love to see them participate on interops so we could 
see, first hand, what actually does or does not work.

Actually original was not iCalendar at all.  It  vCalendar 1.0 September 
18, 1996 which seems to be what apple uses.

I think the item on the Blog is about iCal - which is the Apple standard. 
The apple standard is based on the original work but it's not iCalendar.

[Ietf-calsify] Re:  Google Speculation, but interesting






This is interesting... some months ago (3-4?) I sent in a suggestion to 
Google that they develop a specialized search for calendar information, 
and 
I specifically suggested that they had such clout that they could boost 
calendar standardization and iCalendar. Maybe one of their software 
engineers got interested on his/her own.  In any event, Google's interest 
in calendar can only help propel things along.

Cross posted to ietf-calsify and rdf-calendar because I got two separate 
posts about this on the same day.
