<h1>The /now page movement</h1>
<small>2015-10-21</small>

<p>
	People often ask me what I’m doing now.
</p><p>
	Each time I would type out a reply, describing where I’m at, what I’m focused on, and what I’m not.
</p><p>
	So earlier this year I added a <a href="/now">/now</a> page to my site:
<strong><a href="/now">sive.rs/now</a></strong>
</p><p>
	A simple link.
	Easy to remember.
	Easy to type.
</p><p>
	It’s a nice reminder for myself, when I’m feeling unfocused.
	A public declaration of priorities.
</p><p>
	(If I’m doing something that’s not on my list, is it something I want to add, or something I want to stop?)
</p><p>
	It helps me <a href="/no2">say no</a>, too.
	When I decline invitations, I point them to that page to let them know it’s not personal.
</p><p>
	Anyway, <strong>today</strong> the brilliant Gregory Brown announced that <strong>he added <a href="http://practicingdeveloper.com/now/">a /now page</a> to his site!</strong>
</p><p>
	I re-tweeted his announcement, and <strong>within hours, 8 more people made a /now page!</strong>

</ul>
<p>
	I love it!
	I wish <em>everyone</em> had one!
</p><p>
	<strong>If you make a /now page on your site, please add the URL in the body of a comment, below.</strong>
	Use the full http:// URL, so it will be a clickable link.
</p>
<h4>Update: all /now pages listed at <a href="http://nownownow.com/">nownownow.com</a></h4>
<p>
	(You do get what’s going on here, don’t you?
	Gregory Brown has <a href="/ff">started a movement</a>!)
