Greg Knauss is a funny guy. Though he thinks himself a geek, his not-a-blog and generally frequently updated site An Entirely Other Day provided pleasant looks at technology, kids, ant farms and more, with a refreshingly down-to-earth style not found with the hardcore bloggers today. Of course, “not found” also well describes EOD as it has vanished off the web, existing only in caches (like the fantastic Internet Archive). Undaunted by apparent deletions and posting delays, and with a published version of many of his old posts under his belt, and with sarcasm, cynicism and wit to spare, Knauss has set his sights (or rather, his site) on a new project: the Devil’s Dictionary 2.0, an update on the Ambrose Bierce classic.
He’s just started and has only written a handful of definitions, but the ones there are funny and show a wealth of potential for the future. An attribution line at the bottom foreshadows a possible guest authorship for entries, but nothing is certain. It’s going to take some time to flesh the whole thing out, but hey, it took old Ambrose over five years to compile the final edition of his Devil’s Dictionary–and to think, it started out for just cynics.
