Randy Pausch an Inspiration in His Final Hours

I had never heard of Randy Pausch before I read a post on Ken McArthur’s blog yesterday about the man.

He died today.  It seems he had terminal cancer and was given only a few months to live. Rather than weeping over the hand that life dealt him, he did the only thing he could do – he controlled how he played his cards.

This man must have been amazing to meet in person. If you have some time, watch this video. This is one of the real meat-and-potatoes items on YouTube that is worth your time.  This was his last lecture.

    WOW! That was one of the coolest lectures I have ever heard. Where was this guy when I was in college?

    Tonight (Yesterday – to be exact. Since I’ve stayed up WAY too late or in this case early…) ABC’s Primetime featured Randy Pausch and WOW!!!
