Submission + - The resignation letter of the year - current academia described as it really is (junod.info)

muecksteiner writes: Apparently, an EPFL PhD student recently resigned from his studies in disgust, and sent an open letter to all faculty to describe his motives for doing so. Even if the story of how the letter was written were to turn out to be not entirely true — the content certainly is. A depressing and unfortunately spot on accurate assessment of contemporary academia.
