    What did or do you do - in terms of IM and education.
    This is my last year of school before I go to Univ. and I was wondering - Instead of "going" there , why not take a open-Univerisity program... this way you can study from home and work more IM.

    What do you guys think. What would you do?

    Go to college and pay for it by selling copies of the text books.

    You missed my thread:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...st-extreme-blackhat-money-making-variant.html

    ;) ;)

    I don't know... Maybe something in the IT genre , maybe something science related or even architecture... I really do not know.... Marketing & Economics are important but They are too boring IMHO.
    I just want to get a degree to play life safe

    Go to university as a full time degree will help in case you wanna go 9-5. I know that no one wants to do 9-5 but it may help in some tight spots. Also not to mention the perks..sex, parties, orgies etc.

    I m also doing my degree so i know its fun although not as fun as the American ones, i admit.

    Still cheers matey,

    9-5 means working full time. Ofcourse you might disagree but i think that education is the best investment you can make now...just my thoughts.

    It will also help to get a better understanding of the subject you choose, so later you can monetize on that too. And MIT opencourse ware are good but a bit old.

    Cheers mate.

    I would love to not go to university and do IM full time, but here's why I wouldn't. It's too big of a risk. We don't know what the future of IM holds, and I surely wouldn't wanna risk it. I'm gonna get a 4 year degree to have as a cushion, if worst comes to worse. Just my two cents.
