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.

Great little story from the Washington Post about the guy who owns donotreply.com and therefore receives tons of emails replies from people meant to go to companies (who use the @donotreply.com on outgoing mail they don’t want people to reply to directly or at all). On his blog he documents some of the worst offenders from a privacy perspective (including banks and the government) and asks for donations (though does not require them) to remove the post.
