Lecture of A Lifetime

Randy Pausch, a 46-year-old Carnegie Mellon computer science professor, gave his last lecture last week, and it is amazing. Professor Pausch is dying of pancreatic cancer and only has a few months to live. However, he is still in remarkable shape and is a brilliant and compelling speaker.

Here are parts one and two—the lecture is quite long (many more parts) but it is well worth it. It’s heartbreaking that such a brilliant mind will not be with us much longer. But it is heartwarming to watch such a brilliant speaker at his peak.

Here’s to achieving your dreams.
