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.

In the past I have questioned AttentionTrust publicly. I wasn’t sure just what they were doing and no one seemed to be able to explain it in language I could understand. To be honest, I’m still a little fuzzy, but I’m hoping next Friday will clear that up. That’s when I, and 40-50 other /ROOT Vault owners will convene to talk about the whole shebang. I figure it’s my chance to finally get my questions answered or at the very least to talk geek for a few hours. So anyway, you could come too if you’d like, just go sign up. If you’re looking for me, I’ll probably be in the back sitting next to Andrew Teman, resisting the Kool-Aid at all costs.
