SAD NEWS -- RANDY PAUSCH

Just heard that Randy Pausch, the CMU professor who gave "The Last Lecture" that was such an internet sensation, has died.
What a legacy he left behind! He taught us how to live as he was facing death.

He will be missed. At least we can view his videos that have inspired so many.

If you haven't seen it, or would like to hear it again, the full lecture (1 hour and 17 minutes) was posted on youtube by Carnegie Mellon University where the lecture was given. http://youtube.com/watch?v=ji5_MqicxSo

He gave an abridged version of the lecture (10 minutes) on the Oprah Show. http://youtube.com/watch?v=BODHsU3hDo4

He was a perfect example of how one person can make a huge difference. I'm sorry to hear of his death. He touched many lives and changed lives for the better. You're right, what a legacy.

Kaelin, we must be on the same wavelength. We posted links simultaneously.

I have watched his last lecture about 10X in its entirety. Whenever I feel depressed or down, I plop down in front of the puter and watch it again. His inspirational message is one that will transcend ages. I have used quotes from his lecture in my unit meetings.

Just so we're clear...I'm a tigger.

If you haven't watched it, I STRONGLY encourage you to do so. It's one of those life changing moments that I will forever be grateful to him for giving to me.

May his kids and wife smile everytime they think of what an enormous gift he was to the world.

Me.

I sat and watched it as well after I heard he had died. What a truly inspirational man.
