This page is inspired by Derek Sivers's post The /now page movement and the Now Movement. The purpose of this page is to share what I'm currently focussed on, and will be updated as things change.

This is both for longer-lived interests and shorter-lived "what I'm currently doing".

  • I'm actively blogging about technical and personal things
  • I'm stepping into the IndieWeb movement, one #IndieWeb post at a time
  • I'm organising Homebrew Website Club Nottingham
  • I'm looking to play more board games and socialise more
