Människor som det på något vis känns som om de varit med oss hela livet är alltid svårt att mista. Det är en tröst att hans underbara musik fortfarande finns kvar — men att Ted inte vandrar vid vår sida kommer jag aldrig att kunna förlika mig med.
Första gången jag hörde Ted var jag fjorton år gammal — och idag fyller min yngsta dotter lika många år. Må himlen alltid lysa oskyldigt blå på din väg genom livet, Linnea.
Absolutely marvelous — even Mikael Wiehe himself had to admit this cover was better than the original. Awesome.

Tired of the idea of an infallible mainstream neoclassical economics and its perpetuation of spoon-fed orthodoxy, yours truly launched this blog two and a half years ago. The number of visitors has increased steadily, and with now more than 100 000 page views per month I have to admit of still being — given the rather wonkish character of the blog, with posts mostly on economic theory, statistics, econometrics, theory of science and methodology — rather gobsmacked that so many are interested and take their time to read this often rather geeky stuff.
In the 21st century the blogosphere has without any doubts become one of the greatest channels for dispersing new knowledge and information. As a blogger I can specia-lize in those particular topics an economist and critical realist professor of social science happens to have both deep knowledge of and interest in. That, of course, also means — in the modern long tail world — being able to target a segment of readers with much narrower and specialized interests than newspapers and magazines as a rule could aim for — and still attract quite a lot of readers.
People say time heals all wounds. I wish that was true. But some wounds never heal — you just learn to live with the scars.
