Code, nerd culture and humor from Greg Knauss.

From very, very far away a hand is gently rocking my shoulder. A voice is saying something.

"...gotta get going."

I must have fallen back to sleep. I was reading in bed after breakfast and I must have fallen back to sleep. The lead blanket starts to slide away from my brain and I focus just a little better, rising out of the nap.

"Greg, wake up. You've gotta get going."

It's Joanne. She's waking me. She's intently rocking my shoulder and telling me we have to get going. I blink a little and run my hand over my face. Joanne. Get going. Joanne. Pregnant. Due. Gotta get going.

Oh, my God.

I lurch out of bed, swaying slightly, fighting disorientation. "OK," I say. "Um. OK."

"I'm really sorry I woke you," she says.

"No, no. Let's, ah--"

"It's just that the videos have to be back by noon or they charge us for an extra day."

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!
