Randy Pausch ~ R.I.P.

Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch spoke about Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams at CMU on September 18, 2007. I'm sad to say he gave this talk knowing he had terminal cancer and only months to live and, indeed, he passed away yesterday. I most highly recommend you watch his Last Lecture for yourself... Be sure to also read Jeffrey Zaslow's WSJ articles, both from last September, A Beloved Professor Delivers The Lecture of a Lifetime, and this weekend, Professor Aimed 'Last Lecture' At His Children... and Inspired Millions.
