HI, first of all sorry, but my english is truly bad!
I've noticed that searching in Gcal for public calendars is possibile to find many calendars full of private infos about the people thats share thems.

As explample, serching for "Deloitte" (my company) or "Compleanni" (Birthdates in italian) is possible to find: in the first case, calendars of people full of business appointment with name, phone numbers, addresses and more of clients and firms related with Deloitte, in the second one a lot of bitrhdates with firstnames and surnames of a lot of people. Sometimes also addresses are filled.

I've also notices that, changing the search string to "password" or "admin" or "root" is possible to obtain many private and (theoretically) secret informations.

the people who share their calendar are responsible for the information that they put in their public calendar!! Its not "secrective" information-- if its in public domain.

Google just returns what it finds
