I am an academic economist; my official Web page is here. My job description comprises research in economic theory (maybe I’ll have something to say about it in a future post), as well as teaching. Both aspects of my job involve lots of quality time with a computer, and lots of scientific typesetting. Hence my interest in technology and the wonderful typesetting system known as TeX.
As you may know, the word “TeX” should actually be read “tek,” which is itself (I believe) an approximation to the pronunciation of the Greek word τεχ. Anyway, I thought “tekonomist.blogspot.com” was a reasonably witty URL, or at least it’s the best I could come up with on short order.
Anyway, I would like to share some of my adventures (and mishaps) involving computers, typesetting, and related matters. Hopefully you will find them amusing, and perhaps occasionally even informative. Wish me luck!
