Yesterday’s post about entrepreneurship courses running the risk of becoming the Second Great Lie Of Academia generated a considerable amount of interest. I can’t recall the last time so many readers from such a diverse cross section took the time to reach out directly via email and private social media messages. Long story short, there’s a good bit of thought going on about the very concerns addressed in the article and if half of those who wrote in privately take the time to send in something for publication and/or a comment, it could help usher in a much needed public conversation on this very issue.
In the meantime, there are some fascinating discussion threads working their way through social media. If you’re a Facebook friend of Jon Silpayamanant, be sure to swing by his wall for a lively exchange. Likewise, there is a good comment thread growing at the original post and don’t be shy about weighing in with your thoughts and observations.
