Last Lecture Professor Randy Pausch Dies

The man who created the Internet sensation, The Last Lecture, has died.

Randy Pausch was a professor of computer science, human computer interaction and design at Carnegie Mellon University. He was also a leader in the field of virtual reality research. When Randy learned that he had pancreatic cancer in September 2006, he took the opportunity to create The Last Lecture as a message to his friends and family to celebrate living and the life he had always dreamed of instead of concentrating on the inevitable result of his disease.

In honor of a man who educated in a field I advocate as a consultant, I present to you Randy Pausch's Last Lecture.
