The Last Lecture

Posted on February 29th, 2008, by Steve Hardy in Archives, Miscellany. No Comments

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming for an Oprah moment.

Check out this video, which has apparently been quite popular on the web, of Carnegie Mellon professor Randy Pausch delivering his “last lecture.” The last lecture is an academic tradition but for Pausch, who is suffering from pancreatic cancer and has only months to live, it’s quite real. The married father of three gives a heartfelt presentation about dreams, optimism, and what’s really important in life. Video here or here.
