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.

Slow Sunday Evening

Again, I’ve got lots of random stuff to talk about/link to, so rather than going for an all out post, I’m going with bullets again. Sorry for the inconvenience (not really). (Just as a side note, if anyone is actually reading this, do you mind the bullets? Do I need to apologize for not writing full posts lately? Just curious . . . ) Without any further ado, here are my thoughts/links I think you might enjoy:

  • I’ve gotten a few notes asking me why I haven’t posted anything about Katrina. To be honest, I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t kept up with what’s going on to a level that I feel comfortable writing about it. I invite anyone who feels as though they have something to say about the hurricane and devastation it created to comment here or email me your thoughts and I’ll post them. Also, here’s a fairly moving account of what life was like in New Orleans. (Via my Aunt)
  • Rolling Stone published Hunter S. Thompson’s suicide note: “No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 more than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun — for anybody. 67. You are getting Greedy. Act your old age. Relax — This won’t hurt.”
  • I’ll probably go for an extended writeup at some point, but in celebration of the 2005 NFL season I have launched Da’ Bears Blog. At the moment Jeff is doing most of the writing, but I hope to add my two cents more now that I’ve finally finished designing the damn thing.

That’s it for now. I hope to get on a more normal posting cycle sometime soon. Until then, I’ll be posting links like normal, so come back often for tasty tidbits.
