Today during our last class together, I mentioned Randy Pausch and his Last Lecture. Thanks to the awesome technology our of school, I was unable to show you some of the things I wished I could first hand and with me there to discuss it with you. However, I got as much in as I could. And I wanted to share the video out with you so that you could understand more fully what I was referring to.
YouTube: Randy Pausch Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams
Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch (Oct. 23, 1960 - July 25, 2008) gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed McConomy Auditorium. In his moving presentation, "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams," Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals.
