After talking with ruebezahl in #hackerspaces. I propose there just be a
|calendar= property (or |ics=) on the hackerspaces template for spaces
to say where their ICS formatted feed lives. The ICS format has
provisions for lat/long. There needs to be a script or something
aggregating all of these events from the spaces into a database. Another
web facing script could then allow searches based on a point and a
radius and export those results into an ICS format as well. This
shouldn't be that difficult to setup, and allows the spaces to use
whatever they want for managing their calendars. I have yet to use a
calendar client that doesn't have ICS support.
