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.

My Own Personal Bloggies


Best Web Application for Weblogs: For me this one goes to Movable Type since it’s all that I use, though I have to admit that I fired up Expression Engine the other day and was pretty damn impressed. It’s got totally custom fields which is pretty damn impressive.

Best Australian or New Zealand Weblog: Ha, this one’s easy, Richard McManus’s Read/Write Web is the only one that I read (or at least the only one I can think of).

Best Asian Weblog: Is it a blog? I’m not sure, but PingMag is a Japanese “web magazine” about design that I’m a huge fan of. In a close second is Jan Chipchase, whose Tokyo-based blog about user experience and design is inspiring.

Best African or Middle Eastern Weblog: I got nothing . . .

Best European Weblog:

Best British or Irish Weblog:

Best Latin American Weblog:

Best Canadian Weblog:

Best American Weblog:

Best Tagline of a Weblog: Who cares?

Best Podcast of a Weblog: I don’t do podcasts (oh, the horror!).

Best Photography of a Weblog: Wooster Collective, it’s just street art photography from around the world. Who could ask for anything more?

Best Craft Weblog: I’m not all that crafty.
