There are very few colleges who will tell you that they really don't want to see you again in a year, or two, or seven. At worst they'll make you re-apply. If they won't even go that far, you probably didn't want to go to that college.
Education is not limited to schools, college is not limited to 16-22 year olds.
Now, I'm curious how people will respond to this attitude here. I'm guessing I'll get accused of lacking passion because if I was passionate, I'd want to do all this stuff on my own. I can truly say I enjoy writing software and the act of creation that comes along with that; I just like to get paid when I do it.
But if you are happy with doing things which more or less builds on previous experience, all through your career while the world/you change, congratulations.
seemed to be stay in school, work for a big company, save some money, and get to know as many people as you can, and you'll be better perpared to start a company after all that (say at 30) than you would be without all that (say at 20)
I mean I guess thats true
I didn't see a real convincing argument that that education would be any better than the education you'd get from starting your company at 20, and going through some fires
seems like at 30, that guy will be better educated for starting a company than our first guy
I don't see any real great argument for school and big companies providing for exclusive learning opportunities
