this is fantastic

I usually ignore/avoid things passed virally around the web (especially facebook).  There are only a few of them that are good enough to watch an share.

I had seen this one around for a while, but didn't want to waste my time.

I'm glad I watched it.  Because this is what I believe about higher education (and education in general).  Going to school is not just about's about learning how to be with/work with/play with/interact with/understand other people that aren't like you.  It's a skill that is learned best through experience.

David Foster Wallace says it brilliantly.
