Code, nerd culture and humor from Greg Knauss.

Today is the first anniversary of Continuus Software Corporation's IPO, an event that had all the terrible, slow-motion horror of a motorcycle accident. As of yesterday's close, the stock had dropped to a scanty one and nine-sixteenths, less than a fifth of the original offering price and a new all-time low.

Once you subtract out what I paid for them, my oh-so-New-Economy pre-public options -- my bonus for putting up with the howler monkeys that ran the place for two years -- are now worth:


Not counting commissions and taxes, of course.

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!
