Randy Pausch's last lecture

Father's final message to his children:

This is Randy Pausch. He's 47 years old. He's a Carnegie Mellon computer science professor. He's a father of three young children. He's dying from pancreatic cancer. You'd never know it to listen to him if he didn't tell you outright. Last fall, he gave a "final lecture", normally a hypothetical exercise where one pretends to have one last audience and give one's final thoughts before leaving this world. Except, as he says, I have this elephant here in the room with me.

Watch his "final lecture" and take a moment to re-evaluate your life and what's important to you. I thank Dream Street Rose for bringing this video, and this amazing man, to my attention:

Ok, you made me cry, are you happy now?

That was an excellent video, thank you very much. Wise words, to be sure.
