When Steve Jobs first demoed Lion's AirDrop feature, I was thrilled at the possibility of simply dragging and dropping files from one Mac to another, with no additional steps. But I didn't want to wait the six months or so before Lion actually landed. Well, now that it has, I learned that my one-year old Mac mini isn't capable of pulling off AirDrop wonders. Thankfully, I created a way to make my own AirDrop through a concoction of Dropbox, Automator, and Hazel. Oh, and the post is from awhile ago. Here's the link, let me know what you think! Roll your own AirDrop.
