Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch (Oct. 23, 1960 – July 25, 2008) gave his last lecture at the university on Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed auditorium and that video become a huge viral hit with over 10 million viewing on YouTube. He passed away on Friday in Virginia of pancreatic cancer – I knew nothing about Professor Pausch till someone sent me a link to the video (below) which was his last lecture at CMU. He was truly a remarkable, positive, charismatic and inspirational person who will be missed. If you haven’t seen his last lecture, it’s definitely worth watching. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family and friends.
