Code, nerd culture and humor from Greg Knauss.

Graham and I are at Internet World, standing in the South Hall of the LA Convention Center while the industry's largest trade show surges and ebbs around us. We're watching two guys listlessly tap dance. They're hoofing away in front of a long, curved screen, between it and long, curved bleachers, onto which maybe a hudred people are packed. Above them, two drummers -- drumming drummers, banging out a beat -- stand in black pods as they are slowly lifted and lowered by a crane. Supporting struts tower over the whole thing, displaying banners and video screens and all sorts of references to buzz words and trademarked names.

"I've been here all week," Graham says, "and I still have no idea what they sell."

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!
