Piled Higher and Deeper is a webcomic by Jorge Cham about the highs and lows of a set of postgrad students as they toil away on the path to getting their doctorates. I stumbled across it when a member of our postgraduate student staff had a funny comic as his desktop image that I saw as he was trying to set up a presentation he was showing us during my third year at Uni.
I searched, I found, I laughed and I added it to my favourites.
And then they made a movie!
Okay, so it’s based on the webcomic and some of the humour is academic related (highly amusing now I am an academic of sorts) and it’s coming to my university tomorrow. And since I have a site visit in the morning, it’ll be the highlight of my day.
