If free/busy is good enough for Eliot Spitzer, it's good enough for the rest of us

I don't know -- and don't want to know -- all the details about disgraced (now-ex) New York governor Eliot Spitzer's dalliances with a prostitution ring. But if one peruses some of the coverage, and digs into the online presence of some of the escort services mentioned, you don't have to dig too far to find escorts who post their up-to-the-minute calendars with various days marked "not available."

I relate this information not for salacious value, but to note that if businesses of questionable repute are using free/busy calendaring, this is a sure sign that the technology is progressing to a point where it certainly could do a lot more good for the rest of us -- those of us not engaged in questionable activities.
