Randy Pausch Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams

If you haven't seen this video yet, it is one of those rare jewels that you don't come across very often. It is a little lengthy (a little over an hour), but one that cannot be missed. Randy Pausch was an American professor of computer science and human-computer interaction and design at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). Pausch learned that he had a terminal case of pancreatic cancer in September 2006.

This lecture was given on September 18, 2007 at CMU. He later wrote a best-selling book entitled, "The Last Lecture," based on this lecture and the lessons/thoughts he wanted to leave for his children and posterity. More information about Randy can be found on his personal website at http://download.srv.cs.cmu.edu/~pausch/. ENJOY!

Jeffrey, I also enjoyed this video and thought that you would, too. Evidently you already knew about Randy. . . Just imagine what this awesome individual would be like if he had the fulness of the gospel!

Glad that you reposted it!

Love you son,
