The /now page movement
Derek Sivers, the former big cheese at CD Baby and a very interesting guy, has a /now page. Yesterday a slow movement started that has snowballed since. He’s written a post about it.
The idea is a simple page on a personal website that shows what we’re all up to at the moment. The page should really be written in the present tense. And by standardising the
/now URI it makes it easy to find.
A lot of people seem to be using it as another about me page, or as another way to advertise their product or service. That’s ok I suppose, but I don’t think that’s really in the spirit of it.
I love this idea. But I want to see what people are doing with all their time. I want to get a sense of the person’s whole life right now.
Update 30-10-2015 Derek has launched a site listing people with a /now page.
