Welcome to the home of Noah Brier. I'm the co-founder of Variance and general internet tinkerer. Most of my writing these days is happening over at Why is this interesting?, a daily email full of interesting stuff. This site has been around since 2004. Feel free to get in touch. Good places to get started are my Framework of the Day posts or my favorite books and podcasts. Get in touch.

American Demographics Newsletter

It appears that somehow the latest American Demographics Alert (the new weekly newsletter) has slipped online (it’s supposed to be subscriber only). Since I expect I am not allowed to post any of my own work myself (all of it has a big Primedia copyright notice at the bottom), I am left to linking to it when it gets accidently posted: so here it is. Enjoy my article about children and their weight problems.
