Code, nerd culture and humor from Greg Knauss.

Reconciling religious differences can be one of the most difficult, most contentious parts of the already difficult and contentious business of raising children. My wife, for example, was raised Greek Orthodox and I was raised secular humanist and she’s just fundamentalist enough to refuse to acknowledge the fact that that I’m totally right. And so we’ve compromised, educating our boys in the traditions of both Christianity and common sense.

This has had some unintended consequences.

For example, Peter — my youngest and most doe-eyed son — has craft time at Sunday School, and despite the environment and the raw materials, he often produces pieces that are influenced by my philosophy as well as his mother’s.

That’s my boy!

Hi there! My name's GREG KNAUSS and I like to make things.

Some of those things are software (like Romantimatic), 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!
