Code, nerd culture and humor from Greg Knauss.

It's about nine thirty in the morning and I'm foraging through the fridge at work, pulling out little cardboard boxes from yesterday's lunch. I spoon some fried rice onto the slippery shrimp and drop a wad of cashew chicken on top. I mash the whole mess together, poke some chopsticks in and turn around to find a female co-worker standing behind me with a sort of Dian Fossey-ish look on her face.

"You're not going to eat that, are you?"

"Um... Yeah."





A shudder runs through her body.

"Who in the world has Chinese food for breakfast?"

"The Chinese?"

She doesn't know what to say to that.

"Plus," I add, "I'm going to have scrambled eggs for dinner."

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!
