The Final Lecture

Randy Pausch, the CMU professor who became famous for his final lecture on "Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" passed away early this morning from pancreatic cancer.
In May, Dr. Pausch spoke at the Carnegie Mellon University commencement. He said a friend recently told him he was "beating the [Grim] Reaper" because it's now been nine months since his doctor told him he would die in six.

"But we don't beat the Reaper by living longer. We beat the Reaper by living well," said Dr. Pausch, who urged the graduates to find and pursue their passion. He put an exclamation point at the end of his remarks by kissing his wife, Jai, and carrying her off stage.
Here is "the" lecture.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
