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.

Another Day, Another Links Roundup

Del.icio.us goes down and nobody knows what to do with themselves anymore. I’m stuck here with about 15 open windows just waiting to be bookmarked. So, as 90% Crud put it, I’m just going to have to go with the old-fashioned way: link-blogging.


Just noticed del.icio.us is back up, yet I will go on anyway.


The Rest

  • Mike Wallace on the question he’d ask George W.: “What in the world prepared you to be the commander in chief of the largest superpower in the world? In your background, Mr. President, you apparently were incurious. You didn’t want to travel. You knew very little about the military. . . . The governor of Texas doesn’t have the kind of power that some governors have. . . . Why do you think they nominated you? . . . Do you think that has anything to do with the fact that the country is so [expletive] up?”
  • Mona Lisa is officially smiling, according to some crazy software.

That ends today’s links. Come back tomorrow for your regularly scheduled blogging. I hopefully have an entry on tap this week about the sorry state of blog information architecture as well as my top 50 albums of 2005. Wooohooo.
