I ran across this idea when reading an article by Derek Sivers. The premise is simple: creating a frequently updated page to show what the person is currently doing. The concept really resonated with me, and I expanded on it a bit.
Sivers calls it a Now page and even created an index of these pages. I started looking through these pages and loved a lot of the ideas I found. It was a classic case of being unable to make up my mind. So instead of picking one area or one page to keep updated, I built a site that showcases where my time goes, what I’m reading, what I’m currently developing, and a growing portfolio of my work.
In the future, I’d like to add an Apps page that keeps a list of the tools I’m using on my devices, but that’s an extensive addition, so it needs to come at a later time.
