I have some regrets from college...big things not little things, 'wish I would haves' if you will. While I don't dwell on them whatsoever in my perfect time machine world i would have done these things....meet my girlfriend earlier, not diving for the ball that lead to broken ribs my senior year of rugby...and work for a summer in New York City.
It's one of those things that you have the opportunity to do when you're young...but can't necessarily do later on. Life doesn't give you a lot of three month segments in which to do something like college does.
Seth's offering a summer internship with him. The link is here. 2 months just outside of NYC building something from 10 to 5 with Seth Godin. And it's paid. Sounds awful doesn't it?
If I was Seth, I'd forgot about the high school kids (unless someone amazing pops up), and not dare pick a local. I'd pick 5 kids from 5 different parts of the country, help get them housing together and help them get to NYC as much as possible. Build a little family that ends up building something purple. Or multiple things. Or just has purple smores. I have no idea...but I bet it will be far more beneficial than any quarter of college has been for those 5 kids.
I wrote on having remarkable internships here. I think he got all 10 (we'll see if he has beef jerky on hand).
