RIP Randy Pausch (1960-2008)

bc6e1b0359ad5d5312fee3e387402c5b.jpg“Randy Pausch, a Carnegie Mellon University computer scientist whose ‘last lecture’ about facing terminal cancer became an Internet sensation and a best-selling book, died Friday. He was 47.” He’d been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer almost two years ago.  More at NYT and at Carnegie Mellon.  This is his update page, which I’ve been following for about a year.

His Last Lecture is moving and inspiring, imo. Watch it.
