Well, this is going to be awkward. My last post outlined 65% of the reasons why I was leaving SF and going for my PhD. Trying to write the last 35% turned out to be far more difficult than I thought, so as a lesson for anyone else reading this, make sure you can explain at least 95% of the “why” before telling all your friends and family. The TL;DR: Same company, different job, more excitement, change of mind. I have answer on why I’m staying, but we’ve been asked to keep everything in pseudo-stealth mode for now. Hopefully that’ll change in a month or so!
