What I’m Doing Right Now (July 2020)

What is a Now Page?

A now page is something suggested by Derek Sivers and introduced as a more personal way to give updates to people you haven’t seen in a while.

Check out this site for more information.


We finished adding the new “MARK AS” feature in the FarmBot Web App. It provides the ability to permanently modify a sequence variable from within a sequence. Our focus for the rest of the year is platform stability and improving the weed detector.


I am making good progress on my 2020 goals. I am learning Go to build my “One Big Project” for the year. Details will be announced in January of 2021.

Community Involvement

I just finished a Mastermind group. We re-opened the makerspace after COVID-19. People are still being cautious to avoid social interaction, so we don’t see as much activity as we did pre-COVID.
