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 heard about VectorMagic a few weeks ago, but didn’t really try it (I think it first came from Aaron). After finally giving it a shot I can officially say it’s amazing. If you need to vectorize an image, it’s the place to go. (Having it in vector format allows you to shrink and expand it without losing any quality.)
