No Hiding from AIM

Here's a technology I don't think I need and know I don't want. By figuring out what wireless router you're using, AOL's instant messaging service can let your friends (and your boss) know exactly where you are.

This reminds me of all the hype around presence, when we were all supposed to fall in love with the notion of knowing if our co-workers were in the office, on the phone or in the john. It's not enough that we are tethered to work through cell phones, BlackBerrys and home broadband connections -- now our every physical move is to be known, as well?
