The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Landscape rich in innovation for '03 software

"The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Landscape rich in innovation for '03 software "Kapor describes Chandler as a way of managing and coordinating calendars, contacts, projects and other personal information among multiple computers and with the world at large. Although Kapor does not see Chandler as a "commercial venture," it could at least cover expenses through fees and licenses — and create a platform for software vendors to develop and sell products. Chandler is being designed to run on Linux, Windows and Macintosh computers.
Chandler is a long-term undertaking. Early test versions will be available this year, focused initially on calendaring. But Kapor, wary of raising false expectations, says it will take five years to a decade for the software to reach mature form. Assuming everything proceeds according to plan, the payoff will be not only a powerful tool, but an infusion of innovation to the software arena."
