  • Woit ... is a blogger – he runs an anti-strings blog, he's an ex-physicist, a PhD I think. ... He has strong views about string theory, which he's entitled to, and he blogs them. And good for him.

Quotes about Green[edit]

  • From 1980 through 1984 Michael Green worked with Schwarz to develop superstring theory, and in 1984 they showed that apparent inconsistencies between superstring theory and quantum theory are circumvented in certain special cases. This work kindled the "first superstring revolution," which led to an explosion of interest in this novel approach to quantum gravity and the unification of the forces.
