To add to the mixed news in today’s blog entries, we have to pass on news of the sad if inevitable death of Dr. Randy Pausch.
Some of you may remember Dr Pausch who made headlines a while back when, suffering from terminal pancreatic cancer, he made a life affirming lecture on September 18, 2007 called literally “The Last Lecture” which became extraordinarily well known.
Sadly Randy finally died on 25th July 2008 with friends and family surrounding him.
For those who’d like to know more, all necessary information and links can be found at the Randy Pausch Wikipedia article entry. Reading his lecture is a wake up call to all of us.
