Geo status indicator

The maps.epigoon.com service got extended with something especially nice for bloggers.
As you can see on the right of this post you can add a status indicator that not only shows your status but also your physical location. Don't Panic! It is ridiculously easy to add it to your blog. Tell something to the bot and he will give your the html (iframe) code.
Note: The location is linked to an id/number and not your gmail address, so your (email)address is not exposed. Hooray for privacy.

Update: already 2 nice blogs use the service -> etguler and talou


  • Great !

    Is it possible to modify the size of the iframe ? It seems to be in the script...

    Thank you !

  • manudevil:
    yes it is. You have to set the iframe css style (height & width) and you can give the iframe src the paramater w & h to match the ifrme size.

    at this moment you can only set your nickname (using nick:...) eveything else will have a default reply.

    If you want to set a URL in your nickname just do (if you nick is itcaso)
    nick:itcaso http://www.whatever.com

    If you follow the link that the bot gives you a webpage will show a textbox with the HTML code you need to add the map to your site.
