Iphone may be unhacker friendly, but a good amount of people that visit 
noisebridge have iphone.  There's no reason I can't write an app for 
both android and iphone.

Since there's no other noisebridge app, I just kinda assumed that mine 
would be the official app.  I will gladly make the entire source 
available for anybody that wants to build on it.

I would gladly use pony to store the app for download.  The calendar 
data, and any other shared data, needs to be where other people can edit 
it, though.  Having a shared calendar of events doesn't do any good if 
nobody can edit it.
