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.

Just a quick note to say Happy New Year and wish you all a great 2011.

I will try and do something of a roundup in the coming days, hopefully make it interesting, but I just wanted to say something real quick. Thanks to all of you for spending time with me, whether it’s in person or just by subscribing to the site’s RSS feed. It means quite a bit to be surrounded by so many amazing people, especially as I had what was probably the biggest year of my life (got married, sold a company — which I’ll get to talking about at some point — and a few other big things that I’ll be discussing more in the coming months).

Thanks for being a part of it and here’s to an awesome year to come.
