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.

BRB Blogs

It’s not every day that I get to say the person 50% responsible for me started a blog. This happens to be one of those days. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce brblearning, written by none other than Barbara Rubin Brier, also know as my mom.


She is an educational change consultant and I expect her blog will talk quite a bit about the intersection of education, change and technology. She’s an incredibly smart lady and I highly recommend people pop over, give it a read and say hi (the site was designed by me as well).

For those loyal readers, you may have caught some of her writing on this site. If not, you can go back and read it.

Anyway, just wanted to let everyone know and say congratulations mom, I know you’ll do great.

And for a little Google help, her name is Barbara Brier or Barbara Rubin Brier.

Alrighty, I’m off to Dublin for the weekend. If you’re in the neighborhood and fancy a pint, drop me a line. Until then, everybody have a great weekend.
