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.

Dapper looks like a super-slick screen scraping app that automatically creates RSS/XML (amongst other things) for you (the demo is quite nice). While clicking around the site I ran into a few other cool looking things: Swivel (a data sharing site I had seen a while ago, but not looked at since), Particls (looks a bit like Twitterific for more than just Twitter) and Mashery (out of my league for current projects, but a good thing to know about).
