The Last Lecture

My mother-in-law told my husband and I about a book yesterday. The book is called The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. I plan to pick it up at Barnes & Noble on my break at work today. I was saddened to hear that he passed away today. Click HERE for a link the link to the story on Click HERE for a link to the Google blog as well.

The following video is Randy's presentation at Carnagie Mellon. It's a long one...but WELL worth viewing. This is the first time I've seen a standing ovation BEFORE the main presenter speaks (as well as the first time I've gotten slightly teary-eyed at the words of the person making the introduction). The world has lost a truly great man.
