University vs. post academic life: let the competition begin!
Mind the Gap

First check an article of how the university is giving up its role in the intellectual life as a source of knowledge and innovation, and on the growth of a new bevy of "post academic thinkers". The piece is really interesting not only because it challenges how people are educated, but also how they innovate and integrate knowledge and life projects with the real world -which would seem to be the main dilemma. This is the kind of trends that allow us to visualize more pragmatic and sustainable ways of developing our skills and interact.

But mainly putting oneself in a "retirement mode" may seem to bring people closer to a resign from life.
