economist computer-scientist who also has a degree in Computer ScienceEconomics. If I weren’t the non-obsessive type, I’d be a geek. As it is, I potter around the the edges of geekdom, admire the usual Open Source suspects, handcode my HTML at home, but not much at work.

Silver linings and all that.
