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.

I’m not sure I completely get this, but it’s a visualization of the structure of NoahBrier.com and outgoing links (I think . . .). It’s from a Java applet called tree by texone. Here’s the description from the website:

tree accesses the source code of a webdomain through it’s url and transforms the syntactic structure of the website into a tree structure represented by an image. this image illustrates a tree with trunk, branches and ramifications. first each tree is initialized, than all html links are detected, chronologically saved and finally displayed.

It’s not secret that I’m a big fan of visualizations and even thought I’m not quite sure what I can learn from tree, it definitely looks cool.
