Science: the song has ended but the melody lingers on.

You gotta be a bit of a narcissist to call this an article 'about quant bloggers'. It's about the breakdown of the culture of science in modern times, and related phenomena including quant bloggers.

There are many talented would-have-been scientists out there with free time on their hands, because the state of science education and scholarship underwent dramatic changes back in the 90's. With R&D budget cuts, science was no longer seen as a stable and respectable career field. There was a drive to recruit more women and underrepresented minorites into science programs, which may have left some nerds off the track, whether by fewer available seats or by simple neglect.
