Esther Dyson, Release 1.0

Schedules and calendars (architecture)
Things improve over time - even calendar and scheduling tools. What's happening now? How are calendar developers handling time, calendar-sharing, disclosure of individuals' busy-ness and specific activities? How can we improve multi-person scheduling?

Time and detection
How can time patterns help us detect and predict both opportunities and threats, ranging from potential sales of expensive merchandise on the one hand, to security and health threats on the other? What can you figure out about a user's intentions by watching surfing behavior? What kinds of rules of thumb are emerging about buying patterns, both in sequence and duration? I.e. how does looking turn into research and then purchasing? How do viruses behave as they interact not just with hosts (machines or humans) but with one another?
