The now page movement
Most web sites have an “about” page. This one does, too. Derek Sivers suggests adding a now page as well.
What you put on the now page is up to you, of course, but the idea is that you write something like what you would be telling a long-lost friend about you and yours.
Derek has even started something like a community of people with now pages over at:
See their about page for more. At a first glance, however, it seems like some of the entries on the community pages are used for rather transparent SEO, but I still think the now page is a good idea.
Of course, I've added a now page of my own, so if you wonder what happened to me and what I'm doing now, just head over to my /now page!
