A View From an Ex-String Theorist

Today’s link is more of the anecdote variety, rather than the typical number salad of most of my links, but I still think it’s worth a read. Via Reddit, let’s look at a story, in the author’s own words, about leaving behind academia, even when working in one of the “hot” fields, with a phenomenal background.  I see a lot of people who assume that anyone who leaves academia behind is some sort of de facto failure, but this really isn’t the truth.  There are many reasons people leave behind the ivory tower, and it’s always good to read another story.
