Reminiscent of Milton Friedman’s (somewhat grumpy, I think) declaration that “we are all Keynesians now,” The Guardian declares, we are all nerds now.

I nearly got run over by Milton Friedman once. I was bicycling on the Stanford campus, and he almost blew through a stop sign. He was driving one of those giant, tan-colored Mercedes sedans that, if you bicycle around here a lot, you come to assume are driven by rich people who aren’t going to register your existence.
