Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt’s Oblique Strategies were published a few times as a set of cards — the idea being to choose a card at random when you were stuck in your work (music, that is for Eno), and this random thought would help you figure things out a bit.

The Oblique Strategy Status package includes 2 Applescript applications. The first, iChatObliqueStrategyStatus, will run once and change your status to a random strategy. The second, iChatObliqueStrategyStatusRepeater, is for the more gear-headed I guess. It basically runs as an Applescript application that stays open and changes your status every 5 minutes to a new strategy (keeps your buddies guessing).
