Last September, I made a post about Professor Randy Pausch and his last lecture on my LJ. It was one of the most inspiring and touching talks I’ve ever heard. If you don’t know Prof. Pausch or haven’t watched this clip yet, I highly recommend.
After that, I’ve been following his blog on a regular basis, reading about his fight against pancreatic cancer while making memories with his three small children. I bought his book back in April when it’s released, and couldn’t stop reading even when I was weeping my eyeballs out.
Wednesday night, I looked up his blog again, he didn’t update anything in a couple weeks. Then my sister called me up at work on Friday to check out the news.
Professor Randy Pausch passed away on Friday, leaving behind his “Last Lecture” for millions to learn from.
