One of the biggest concerns people have about leaving platforms like
Facebook and Meetup is that they fear they will miss out on events.  I
just put up another blog[1] about this topic in fact.

What tools do we have for sharing data about events in other ways?

For example, are there any free software tools that make it easy to send
birthday invitations using iCalendar (.ics) email attachments and is
this an option for mainstream use?

For larger or more public events, what could be done to gather and
distribute data effectively in iCalendar HTTP feeds, similar to the way
that Planet software aggregates and distributes RSS?  If we could use
such techniques effectively for events in the free software world (and
the IT industry in general), it would provide a useful model for other

I recently used search engines to try and find out about events and
dragged up a bunch of sites, some local, some international:

but clearly there are far more events out there, just in the free
software world, that don't appear in any of these sites.
