The complex world of calendars

You know, it's funny. I've been wondering about this as well.
When it comes to e-mail and calendaring, I’m very picky about keeping it universally accessible. I want my mail available whenever I need it, regardless of where I am and what computer/mobile/OS is the current flavor of the month. My mail and calendars are the most important digital bits of my life.

Now, to the problem: there is no universally accessible calendaring solution.

Google Calendar ... has a great web interface with drag-and-drop functionality, multiple calendars support, and the ability to subscribe to public calendars. It also allows you to export your calendars if you would like to switch calendar service in the future. However, you can only use Google’s web interface to modify your calendars ... Google’s calendars are read-only for other clients.
