The world is gaining on us. Or we're starting to get to the world, I can't tell which. There's an article today, on the front page of the "Living" section of the newspaper, which contains the following:
This system works because of a well-defined standard for electronic mail messages. All e-mail software, if it has any hope of working properly, needs to stick to this standard for handling incoming messages and sending outgoing messages.
If only the same kind of standard existed for electronic calendars.
Then we'd be able to easily exchange appointments [...]
Unfortunately, we're stuck with a system in which [...] these programs refuse to talk with one another.
That was John Moran, of the LA Times - Washington Post Service. I wonder if he's looked at Helix's Evolution preview yet.
