It’s a very good article and TeX gets more than a mention. I wrote the author to say that she should have included a link to the TeX Showcase (which I provided) in the electronic edition, and also should have mentioned that (La)TeX is absolutely free software. It was an extraordinary gift to us all. (I also told her about the arXiv, which she may not know about…)

For those TeXperts, TeXnicians, and the rest of us who prefer print, the article may be read in today’s (Tuesday 15 December 2018) New York Times, Science times, pp. D1 and D6.
