You have arrived at the web home of Noah Brier. This is mostly an archive of over a decade of blogging and other writing. You can read more about me or get in touch. If you want more recent writing of mine, most of that is at my BrXnd marketing x AI newsletter and Why Is This Interesting?, a daily email for the intellectually omnivorous.

Almost April Fool's

It's Friday and there's dead mouse smell lingering around my cubicle. That must mean it's time for a link roundup. At some point in the near future I plan to again add some real content to this site, but in the meantime links to others adding real content will need to do the trick. Also, I'll make another plea: If you have any thoughts on the design of this site or want to help me by taking a look at my thoughts for the redesign, please let me know.

April Fool's Day

Yup, it's that time of year again.


Two Favorites

  1. Apparently there's a section in New York Magazine called High Priority and each week they ask a different designer to create a graphic for it. According to Design Observer the rules are simple: "The illustration is 4.4 inches high by 6.875 inches wide; it has to include the five events, the dates of the week, and the words "High Priority;" and it can only use two colors, red and black." Check out the full gallery of designs.
  2. I like Guy Kawasaki. Check out his recent post The Art of Driving Your Competition Crazy. It includes eight ways to go about doing it, but more importantly, it's all based on being obsessed with the pursuit of excellence and better customer service rather than beating the competition.

Word up. That's it for now.
