DailyDirt: Graduation Advice

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Graduation season is just about here, and lots of students are going to put on some black robes and accept a very expensive piece of paper and a hand shake. And along with those newly-minted degrees, plenty of older and more experienced folks will try to offer some advice. Here are just a few interesting words of wisdom for young grads. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Conan..

    Why isn't Conan on Hulu? I just don't understand why Conan can only be seen on its own obscure website and TBS...

    It's nice to see some great graduation advice. I'm at a bit of a loss as to how this is Tech news...

    Just sayin'.

    I liked this one. They say that you shouldn't take advice from successful people. You should study them and copy what they do. They often don't know (or admit to themselves) why they were really successful.

    Re:

    Pixelation,

    Good graduation advice may benefit innovation and technology..? Okay, that's a stretch, but does Techdirt have to be restricted to just Tech topics?

    I suppose not. Here is an idea...
