The Last Lecture...
Randy Pausch recently passed away. He was a professor at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh who quickly became famous for his 'last lecture'. These lectures are given by faculty to new students or as part of a lecture series, through which they are encouraged to give their last lecture -- to craft a thoughtful, inspired and powerful lecture as if it were their very last. Professor Pausch's lecture has nothing to do with engineering or his research. It is about achieving your childhood dreams. Consider taking an hour to sit back, relax, listen, and reflect. It's definitely worth it. The lecture is also available in print, under the title 'The Last Lecture".
