I missed this lecture when it made the rounds in Fall, but I was still incredibly moved and inspired by the presentation. I watched it again with Dana last night. I highly recommend watching the video.
Quick background: Randy Pausch is a professor at Carnegie Mellon in their computer science department. He’s been very influential in the field. He was also recently diagnosed with terminal cancer. He refuses to live his live in despair and his lecture is funny and uplighting.
The lecture is a little over an hour, but much better than anything you’ll find on tv.
