Programmer, Disney Imagineer, and Professor of Computer Science of Carnegie Mellon Randy Pausch delivered his “Last Lecture” on September 18 regarding the subject of “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams” at Carnegie Mellon.

Pausch’s remarkable life and career makes for interesting fodder in and of itself, but his ‘Last Lecture’ is more than just a theoretical exercise, as Pausch was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. But rather than wax meloncholy on a life of missed opportunities, this lecture is a wonderful affirmation of how life can be lived to the fullest.

I can’t possibly recommend it highly enough.

    This should be required watching (?) for all graduating high school seniors or college freshman. We should all live our lives like this.

    Is there anyway to e mail me the Randy Pausch last lecture? I cannot access through my servers. I am a middle school counselor.
