Code, nerd culture and humor from Greg Knauss.

Last night, while watching the trouble in downtown LA, I saw one guy pick up a trashcan and start to throw it at an abandoned police car. But then he notices a guy standing on the hood, busy whacking at the windshield with a board. So he waits. He puts the trashcan down and politely waits for the other guy to finish and step down, back into the crowd. Then he re-hefts the can and heaves it at the car's roof.

Just because he's a vandal doesn't mean he's rude.

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 I'd love to hear from you!
