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.

It’s really just a bad joke that took about two years for anyone to ask about … (Oh, and the photo on the page was taken by the talented and beautiful Leila Fernandes.)
