A commencement speech full of contrarian advice, some of it totally wrong, but definitely worth reading and thinking about:

You know the sort of people who tell you that? Teachers. Don’t you think there is some measure of conflict of interest? They are in the business of learning, after all. Where would they be without you? They need you to be repeat customers.
