Code, nerd culture and humor from Greg Knauss.

So I'm waiting in line at Vons and the guy in the next aisle is hitting on the cashier. He says:

"...like, y'know? I write out stories and, like, thoughts and stuff. It's, like, y'know? Like, I've been doing it since, like, 1984 and it's really, just, like... Uh..."

"That's cool," she says.

"Yeah," he says, savoring the word. "Cool. It's, like, cool. Y'know?"

And a guy that's standing off to the side of the cashier suddenly speaks up. "I'm living with her," he says.

"Oh..." says the guy. "OK. Like, cool."

He didn't stand a chance. Everybody knows you need a mailing list and a Web site to get the babes. Like, duh.

Hi there! My name's GREG KNAUSS and I like to make things.

Some of those things are software (like Romantimatic and Buzz Clock), Web sites (like the Webby-nominated Metababy and The American People) and stories (for Web sites like Suck and Fray, print magazines like Worth and Macworld, and books like "Things I Learned About My Dad" and "Rainy Day Fun and Games for Toddler and Total Bastard").

My e-mail address is greg@eod.com. I'd love to hear from you!
