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.

Trying stuff is cheaper than deciding whether to try it

That’s about as good a summation of my internet strategy as I’ve ever read. It’s the reason own 50+ domains (many of which have nothing on them) and buy new ones at least once a week. What’s more, though, is that I’m pretty sure this is becoming increasingly true in the rest of our lives. Sure it costs more to produce physical goods, but as costs drop, the possible return of going on a whim makes it worth trying.
