SHAZAM!

This past weekend the new movie, Shazam, topped the box-office revenue list with over US$53million - and this is it's first weekend since being released.

Not bad!

Of course, in the Econometrics World, we associate the word, SHAZAM, with Ken White's famous computing package, which has been with us since 1977. 

Ken and I go way back. A few years ago I had a post about the background to the SHAZAM package. In that post I explained what the acronym "SHAZAM" stands for. If you check it out you'll see why it's timely for you to know these important historical facts!

And while you're there, take a look at the links to other tales that illustrate Ken's well-known wry sense of humour.

  1. Shazam is what I ran my first regressions on as an undergrad' c. 1983. On a mainframe of some sort.
