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.

Monday Reads

[Editor’s Note: Since I’ve now gotten rid of the links roundup in the RSS feed, I’m going to try and do a weekly roundup of some good links to check out. (For those interested in subscribing directly to the links, grab the Sidenotes RSS feed.) What you will read below is said link roundup. Enjoy.]

This defies categorization, but is well worth a read.
