"Last Lecture" Lessons

Back in April, we posted a blog entry about Randy Pausch, a Carnegie Mellon University professor who, after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, delivered a "Last Lecture" about achieving childhood dreams. Pausch, who expanded his lecture into a book, appeared on Oprah, and inspired millions of people with his message, lost his battle with pancreatic cancer last Friday.

Now might be a good time to revisit his lecture, in remembrance of this man and his timeless message.
