Lecturer of "The Last Lecture" Passes

To some, this is old news, Carnegie Mellon Professor Dr. Randy Pausch succumbed to pancreatic caner on July 25th. His book "The Last Lecture" inspired many with his "love story for your life."

On his homepage, he writes: "I am flattered and embarassed by all the recent attention to my "Last Lecture." I am told that, including abridged versions, over six million people have viewed the lecture online. The lecture really was for my kids, but if others are finding value in it, that is wonderful. But rest assured; I'm hardly unique. Send your kids to Carnegie Mellon and the other professors here will teach them valuable life lessons long after I'm gone. "

How many of us could/would see life, love, the world through his eyes and walk in his shoes while having his positive and graceful perspective of reality, of fate? I'm currently about to finish his book - you'll see it on my reading list. I hope that it's on yours as well and I hope we can all learn from his experience and insight.

You'll find more links about him, his life, his book with interviews and pictures below....

Rest in Peace, Dr. Randy
