David D. Friedman
I am an academic economist with a doctorate in theoretical physics who teaches at a law school. My most recent non-fiction publication, Future Imperfect, looks at technologies that might revolutionize the world over the next few decades. My first book, The Machinery of Freedom, sketched out how a society in which all useful governmental functions had been privatized might work; Verner Vinge based the setting of one of his stories ("The Ungoverned") on it.
My activities in the SCA include period story telling, medieval cooking, building period furniture, and much else. Other interests include home unschooling (of two children, one now in college one about to be), Kipling, poetry, lapidary work, educational software, applications of economics to things other than the economy.
