The Herald had a story this morning on an inspirational speech by Carnegie Mellon University Professor Randy Pausch who spoke as part of a “last lecture” series where lecturers are meant to pretend they are near death and want to sum up the most important lessons for their students.
Pausch, who is in his 40s, didn’t have to pretend as he has terminal pancreatic cancer.
Anyway thanks to the some quick searching, his lecture is embedded above. It is 76 minutes long, but it will be one of the better ways you can spend an hour this weekend. He’s made me focus on what really is important in our lives, and I doubt anyone can not be somewhat touched by it.Tags: dying, Randy Pausch, You Tube
