Being the oldest RIR of all, RIPE started in university campus with a lot
of tech geeks, thus many of senior folks in RIPE community have an academic

That being said, talent exists in many forms, some of the greatest minds in
tech world does not hold a university degree, in fact, studies shows CEO
without university degree get paid more than the ones have.

If a person at his/her 20s, flash out of campus, academic achievement might
be very important as he/she might not have done anything else yet.

But when a person at their 30s, 40s, 50s,  I would consider their life
achievement to be far more important factor than a master degree he/she
obtained 20 years ago.
