Randy Pausch is a CS professor at Carnegie Mellon. He’s 47, a father of three, and he’s dying of cancer. There’s a tradition at CMU, where professors are honored at their last lecture, and are free to pass on whatever message they see fit. Randy’s is an entertaining and insightful talk about chasing your childhood dreams and he does it through anecdotes that are near and dear to our nerdy hearts. It’ll really hit you emotionally, though, when his speech is done and you realize that this man will likely die in a few months and this speech is his parting message.
