Wednesday Updates

Things we're thinking about this week:


Is there a point to college anymoreSomething I've been thinking about for a really long time. Seems like there are studies that show a lack of skill transfer from university to everyday life, which I find truly disturbing - how are people with science degrees not learning the scientific method and applying it to their life? It's always been tricky trying to separate learning from learning to pass an exam. Now it's key to figure out what proxies/better predictors we should be looking into instead to demonstrate skills and abilities.

A different approach to Instagram. I like this a lot. It's so incredibly difficult to stand out on social, you really need to do something special and make it worthwhile. If you don't have time to figure it out, you really should be spending your time doing something else (like improving your product or customer support). It's not difficult but this makes it a little more relatable.
