iChat Knows Where I Am, blogs EIC Jason Snell at Macworld. He’s whipped up a mildly kludgy AppleScript to set iChat’s broadcast indicator status to recognize his current location, either ‘at the office’ or ‘at home.’

Hm. This doesn’t directly apply to my needs right now, but it’s an interesting idea… I like the idea of status indicators available to good friends and family. In my case, something like ‘vacuuming,’ ‘washing dishes,’ ‘doing laundry,’ ‘jobhunting,’ and the like might be cool. Not that I have any idea how to automate that.

Tangentially: look! blogs at Macworld! Looks like Jason has been at it since January 20, and Mac 911 dude Chris Breen has been going since December.
