How to start in Infosec

I attempted a similar list earlier this year but included a bit of a narrative for each:
http://www.securityramblings.com/2016/01/breaking-into-security-compendium.html
(there may be some that you did not include in your list)

I also wrote a blog post on Education in InfoSec back in 2014:
http://www.securityramblings.com/2014/06/education-infosec.html
(it's not exactly a "Breaking into InfoSec" post but those looking to begin a career in our industry may find it relevant)
