Randy Pausch Died Today :(

Earlier I submitted another post on Professor Randy Pausch. Here is the link. He was a Professor of Computer Science, Human-Computer Interaction, and Design at Carnegie Mellon. In Sept. of 2006, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and it is the most deadly of cancers, with only a 4% 5-year survival rate. As he knew, he was dying he gave this wodnerful lecture names ‘Last Lecture’ which later became one of the most sensation lecture in the internet and bestselling book!!

Here is a post to Pausch’s Web site yesterday by his friend “Since last week, Randy has also taken a step down and is much sicker than he had been. He’s now enrolled in Hospice. He’s no longer able to post here so I’m a friend posting on his behalf because we know that many folks are watching this space for updates.”

His lectures, stories and motivations were really encouraging. This strong, funny and very inspiring man died today at his Virginia home at the age of 47.  Here is the youtube link to his very famouse lecture.
