Luckily, in a world that contains Khan Academy, open course material from all kinds of major universities, and  all the TED talks you can handle, staying academically engaged even outside the actual academy is easier than ever. My friend and colleague Lili is blogging over at GradGuru, and recently asked “What are you doing this summer?“. My main goal this summer is to start learning how to code with CodeAcademy. How about you?
