I found this video extremely interesting about hacking life and education to get the best out of it.
Logan Laplante is a 13 year-old boy who was taken out of the education system to be home schooled instead. Logan had the ability to tailor his education to his interests and also his style of learning, something traditional education does not offer.
As Logan has said, when he grows up he wants to be happy and healthy. At a TEDx talk, he discussed how hacking his education is helping him achieve that goal.
