I was impressed with the POST of Patrick Minneault on his blog now moving to neuroscientist. He's 24 years old (can't believe!) and become in a few years in one of the top Flash developpers, supporting amfphp proyect and moving it to a new stage.
Probably he will become a great neuroscientist now, I hope the best for him. An excerpt of the POST:
The short: I got myself a summer job at the Montreal Neurological Institute, which I am hoping is the start of a brilliant career in neuroscience. Then I'm finishing my undergrad and hopefully doing a PhD in the field, and with the amount of work I have coming up, I don't think I'm going to be able to keep up with the changing world of Flash, and besides, I'm ready for a new challenge. I will be finishing the 2 chapters in the Open Source Flash Development book, and releasing amfphp 2 (you can thank Apress for that one!), and that's going to be the end of it. I might keep one client so I don't get too much into debt, but I won't be updating the blog anymore, and I will step down from the head developer position for amfphp. If anybody wants to take care of amfphp, then please drop a comment or send an email on the list. Also if anyone wants to buy the 5etdemi domain or keep up the blog, let me know, as I'm thinking of bringing the the site down.

Good luck Patrick !
