The Last Lecture

Sometimes stories and people sneak up on you when you least expect it but most need it. Randy Pausch, recently named in the 2008 Time 100, is a Professor of Computer Science and virtual worlds at Carnegie Mellon (and who has worked for Disney Imagineering) who is dying of pancreatic cancer. Long admired as a professor at Carnegie Mellon, Pausch gave his “Last Lecture” in September 2007 about achieving your childhood dreams. More than that, Pausch - to me - is an example of the resiliency of the human spirit; a teacher of both how to die and how to live. His last lecture is below.

I hope you’ll watch it.
