I came across this conference here in Vienna and became nostalgic. I was at the first one so many years ago and thought it was great. I was working as a volunteer and had the chance to meet Ted Nelson, whom I wouldn't have been able to discern from Adam at the time but whom I subsequently learned was a pioneer in my field. Sorry Ted, I was just getting into the information profession (a.k.a. IA a.k.a. HCI a.k.a. User Centered Design a.k.a. UX.)
Anyway, I found Scope2 and was reminded about a scratch I've been itching for a while. Do you know what I've wanted for the longest time? A little handle (a.ka. link) that says "Add this to my calendar" and then *poof!* it's in my electronic calendar. It'd be nice if that were for MS Outlook ('cause I'm such a geek when it comes to Oulook) but what about for Google Calendar? The API's there. I mean, you can Digg a story, auto-add feeds to your news aggregator, and post a link to deli.cio.us, so why can't you capture something in your calendar?
