The great econophysics debate (source: "Econophysicists Matter", Editorial, Nature 441(7094) (2006): 667)

(14 June 2005)

Economics and physics are two disciplines that, contrary to widespread perceptions, have significant common agendas. Shame, then, that the professionals don't do more to recognize the fact. After hearing a talk on the application of physics to the social sciences, a physicist in a notoriously traditional department was heard to mutter that it was all very well but it wasn't 'real physics'. It was an article of faith to him that many-body theories in physics could not be applied to animate objects. Now that it seems clear that bacteria, locusts and even road traffic undergo types of dynamic phase transition, this objection is hard to sustain. ...
Collective Evaluation Project An application of the "new information theory"

Yi-Cheng Zhang (14 June 2005)

As if it were yesterday, Econophysics Forum web site actually is seven years old. Around the summer of 1998 a handful of my colleagues who later to be labelled as ’econophysicists’ were wondering how to tap the then new WWW phenomenon to foster the fledging community. The dream was to have a kind of ‘virtual institute’, enabling scientists working on the margins of the traditional disciplines and institutions to mingle and work together. Seven years is a long period, especially in the Information Age. The original vision didn’t bear out completely, but it was an interesting experiment leveraging then primitive web technologies and to have gathered a consistent crowd among the physicists and other scholars in the interdisciplinary domain. ...
