Randy Pausch - Last Lecturer passes away





Liu
For those that don't know this man, he is absolutely extraordinary. He is a Carnegie Mellon professor, and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year. Carnegie Mellon has a last lecture series where professors are given the ability to give their last lecture before retiring, switching careers, etc. In Randy's case, this truly would be his last lecture due to his cancer. He gives some really really great advice and life stories from his child hood:

We need more individuals like this man in a world of today. He passed away today:

I am afraid to say I had not heard of him before, but I have just enjoyed watching his entire lecture. i would urge anyone who has not seen it to watch the whole thing. It is very uplifting, and entertaining.

Thank you for bringing him, and his lecture, to my attention.

I saw his last lecture last year.

It was a real lesson.

May he rest in peace.
