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.

Do You Like the Links?

I spent most of today walking around New York City and enjoying the weather (including a good time in Central Park that included an Uma Thurman sighting). While I wasn’t soaking the weather in (and some of the time I was), I worked on my redesign. One of the things I’m really struggling with is how many people use the links on the right side of my page? Do you like them? Do you click on them? Should I include them in the redesign?

I feel like they need to be there because I’ve talked to lots of people who have referenced something they’ve seen there. But how about some feedback? Please. Pretty please.

Tell me how you use the site. Tell me anything. This redesign is really only happening because I want to create a blog that makes sense. To do that I need to understand the intricacies of how you use this.

Also, if anyone would like to critique the design-in-progress, drop me an email at nb [at] noahbrier.com.

Enjoy the weather and go have a scotch, it’s good for you.
