CalDAV is the Open Standards approach to calendar sharing. It is a little bit late to the game, but adoption is accelerating. Support has been announced by vendors such as Apple and Oracle. The Open Source community has a number of projects underway to utilize this new standard.

According to the Go Open Source web site, Go_Open was the first television series dedicated to Open Source Software. The television series aired in South Africa as part of a campaign to promote open source. Here is a fast mirror to those videos:

The light blue area, which includes a screened deck, will likely be optional components that we will not build initially to reduce construction costs.
