academia is killing my friends

After spending the week thinking about how Filip Vostal and I could incorporate a function to allow people to post anonymous first person essays on the Accelerated Academy website, I just noticed that the depressing and important site Academia is Killing My Friends has started posting new content again. I’d encourage anyone interested in the future of higher education to read it, as it gives voice to the diffuse suffering of some of the next generation of academics in a more immediate and visceral way than anything else I’ve come across.

I’m not sure if there’s any value in Filip and I trying to launch our own Accelerated Academy version of this. I think it would be best to simply promote this one in any way we can.
