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.

I’ve been meaning to write this entry for a while but have been struggling with exactly what I want to say and how to say it. Anyhow, basically the point is I want to give something back to all you readers and I want to make this place feel a little more like a community.

One idea I had is to feature the blogs of commenters/readers more prominently on the site. I’ve also thought about aggregating posts from your sites (assuming you all agreed) and displaying them here. Obviously I need to work out some details, but just wanted to throw out the idea and get some opinions, thoughts and ideas.

I figure eventually this will require me writing some code and redesigning the site, but for now I would like to feature a few posts every week from your blogs. So in the comments or an email I’d really appreciate if you posted a link to a post on your site you’d like people to read. Don’t feel self-conscious or anything like that (I know normally I feel a little weird about posting links to my site in comments).

I’ll then update this post or add a new one with the links.

Is this a good idea? Has anyone else been thinking about this sort of thing? I know 9rules has its widgets and MyBlogLog helps with the community portion, but I’m not really a widget sort of guy (I like to control every pixel plus I hate the load time).

Anyway, just an idea . . . We’ll see if anyone’s in to it.
