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.

Hi. This is Charles. I’d like to talk a little bit about inspiration.

Those of you who know Noah know that he’s a pretty inspiring guy. In fact, he writes about being inspired all the time. Today, I’ve thought of a way to give back to the thoughts and ideas that this site has curated over the years, and spread a little love along the way.

I’ve put together a simple form below. All it asks for is your name and an inspiring link. To extend any potential conversations, you can add your URL too (if you have one). In a few days this can turn into something really great, so stay tuned!

Your name
Your website (optional). Please include “http://”
A link to something that inspires you. Please include “http://”
The word “pants”. (this prevents spammers… a little)

NOTE: RSS & Email subscribers will probably need to visit the site to view this form correctly.

…and that’s it. End of post. Take all that time you set aside for reading something lengthy, and use it to track down that piece of inspiration that’s going to make someone’s day. Here’s mine.
