Code, nerd culture and humor from Greg Knauss.

The high school near my house recently started smelling like sperm. Two possible reasons spring to mind:

  • There are these trees surrounding the parking lot -- big carob trees, Ceratonia siliqua -- and in the Fall their fruit drops and starts to rot. One popular description of the resulting smell is "human ejaculant."

  • The students are back on campus.

I'm not sure which theory disturbs me more.

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!
