Introducing my "now page"

November 13, 2023

What’s a now page?

It’s a movement started and popularized by Derek Sivers - learn all about it at this link. In short, it’s a page that tells the world what’s going on with me at this point in my life. I’m using it as double duty for it’s own sake as well as for an “about” page for now, but that will come too eventually.

Why now?

I’ve been wanting to update my site for a while, and meaning to do the now page in particular since I found out about it in like 2016. Now that I have some motivation and help with childcare, the time is right for updating this site, and a now page seemed like a natural place to start because a lot of time has passed since my last post here.

Where is it?

My now page will have a permalink at elliotec.com/now. The first update ever goes out today with this post, and I don’t know if or how I plan to archive updates to it (aside from git I suppose), so I’m going to post the contents of the first update below.

First update:

Updated November 12, 2023, from my home in Salt Lake City.






This website

This website has existed roughly in it’s current form for over a decade. I’ve had a bunch of thoughts around building my own SSG for the sake of it, but honestly the current set up is still working very well and it’s tough to justify a change. Maybe I’ll do some design updates, and definitely will move the server to my NAS from Digital Ocean. Other than that, I’m going to try to update this page and make more posts. See ya soon!
