Randy Pausch - Last Lecture 1960-2008


Recommended Posts

I'm sure some of you heard of Randy Pausch. He passed away on Friday. :lol:

Here's a link to the wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randy_Pausch

I can't find the you tube video right now, I only get the hour long one. I know there's a shorter one floating around.

He was a professor at Carnegie Mellon University who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer about a year ago. He gave a "last lecture" in the tradition of the university. The lecture is very inspriing, moving, and touching. Just google the Last Lecture or Randy Pausch and you'll get the video of his lecture. I always found his lecture inspiring and uplifting and I'm sorry to see him go. He was a strong, inspirational man who I'm sure will be remembered by millions.

The hour long one is definitely worth the time, I watched it right before I graduated from college. I didn't know that he'd passed away, thank you for posting that. He was very inspirational - he had an amazing outlook on his life and his disease.
