Randy Pausch (Oct. 23, 1960 - July 25, 2008)

Don't know if any of you have been following this story. Mr. Pausch was featured on an interview with Diane Sawyer last year and I have been interested ever since. Extremely inspirational and real gentleman who, though extraordinary circumstances, has left an inspirational message that has had over 3,200,000 hits on youtube.

Here is the description from Youtube:
"Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch (Oct. 23, 1960 - July 25, 2008) gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed McConomy Auditorium. In his moving presentation, "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams," Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals. For more, visit www.cmu.edu/randyslecture."

Other reference material:

Randy's Website

Last Lecture Video (Over an hour but well worth it. ) You will probably want to sit and share this with someone.

Re: Randy Pausch (Oct. 23, 1960 - July 25, 2008)

So today was they day. Thank you Mr. Pausch. If I was religious I'd day rest in peace, but I'm not, so all I can say is thank you (although to who I'd say this remains a mystery). He made the world a little better by being here.

I've haven't gotten through "The Last Lecture" yet, but I will soon. I hope when I go, I can leave behind something of as much value.
