Last Lecturer Randy Pausch Died Today

Randy Pausch, the Carnegie Mellon University computer scientist whose "last lecture" about facing terminal cancer became an Internet sensation and a best-selling book, died Friday. He was 47. The moving story was first brought to Bonez readers' attention with the January 2008 post entitled Live Your Childhood Dreams.

I am grateful for the message and life example Randy left the world and the spirit in which he did it.

Hi Blue,

Yeah, Randy Pausch really had his act together for the Last Lecture. He had some very sound advice for all of us to consider. His life and death both contributed to the greater good of all humankind. What a legacy!
