dr randy pausch died on 25 july 2008 age 47. the father of 3 was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and lost his battle, but not before giving a series of lectures called the “last lecture”. he talks nothing about the disease, religion or dispair. but his brilliant spirit shines through as he talks about achieving dreams, help others achieve their dreams and the quality of life in general.
the first one is done on oprah winfrey (~10mins)…
a full 1 hour plus version was done at carnegie mellon (www.cmu.edu).
these lectures should be mandatory lectures for people at all ages and in all institutions. very inspiring and moving.
the life messages are very important to all of us.
his videos garnered more than 10million views at youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji5_MqicxSo&feature=related
