Dr. Randy Pausch: The Last Lecture

It had been a while since I'd watched "The Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" by the late Dr. Randy Pausch, but I got the opportunity, and the pleasure, earlier this week. It's always time well spent. I would encourage everyone to view it at least once and, even more importantly, have your children watch it as well.

Carnegie Mellon University runs a lecture series in which faculty is invited to give a presentation as though it was their "last lecture". On September 18, 2007, Dr. Pausch, a Computer Science Professor who had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer months earlier, in his own words "nailed the venue". He passed away on July 25, 2008.
