The Living Thing / Notebooks :

Calendars and contact databases, digital, use thereof

Google calendar, iCloud etc exist. but who wants to spend so much effort gifting google with free information about all their friends? Well, most of my friends, TBH. But it leaves me feeling gross.

Jargon to know here: CalDAV and CardDAV are the de facto standards to sync your calendar and contact information, respectively. All you need is a server which talks those standards and you can use whatever client you’d like.

So! Running your own. that’s a legitimate use of your precious free time, right? Uh.
