What value does a college degree hold? And to the extent that an elite university degree does provide some special benefit to its holder, is it a value that could hypothetically be made universal, or is it intrinsic to the exclusivity of the degree? The conversation here revolves around these questions, but not with a few tangents, including how David Labaree actually being a really nice guy and a certain absurd stance on the value of software engineering.

9/21/2017
