The things you don't think about...

I was reading an article that had been linked in a blog post and this bit caught me up short:
"First, some background. I started my watch reporting career just before Hayek arrived on the Swiss watch scene in the early 1980s."
Somehow I had never realized the "wristwatch journalism" was an actual career field. Then I felt silly, because I basically earn my daily bread from reporting on a niche hobby. I'll bet "fountain pen journalism" is a thing.

Incidentally, Swatch Hayek doesn't appear to be any sort of close kin to "Road to Serfdom" Hayek.
