In the /now

I saw a few of these "now" pages on other people's websites but didn't understand what it was about until reading Peter Rukavina's post and then Derek Siver's post. I have created a "Now" page.

Think of what you’d tell a friend you hadn’t seen in a year.

Like, “Still living in Dallas, though considering moving to Austin. Working at ABC. Really getting into cycling. The kids are age 3 and 6. I’m reading a lot of Pema Chödrön, and listening to a lot of jazz piano especially Brad Mehldau. I’ve stopped taking on web design clients, since I’d rather keep improving my back-end database work.”

That’s what a now page is for. You can’t get that big picture from any other outlets I’m aware of.

    Awesome, congrats! I love the whole idea of a “Now” page as well. Leave it to the independent web to come up with something so useful. I couldn’t find yours on your website; did I miss the link somewhere?

      Hi Chris, I meant to link to my "now" page in the original post, but I forgot, but have now updated the post to correct for that.

      Looking at your now page, it seems you are or have been very busy. I like your site layout. I never seem to like mine. I added your website to my RSS.
