Another self taught here.

The best way to learn is follow the pro’s: Read their blog, watch/read their tutorials, and if possible attend their conferences.

I have degree’s but they’re useless at this point (no employer has even asked) I had a blog post up on my thoughts on education systems, the gist of it has already been mentioned. Unless it’s a well-known place for this type of media it’s highly likely you will be learning old techniques that may or may not be of much use these days.

The only upsides I see to it are:

  • You will hopefully meet some other designers and form a few allies.
  • Employers may take it into account, possibly helping you become employed.
