Randolph Frederick Pausch, or Randy, succumbed to cancer on Friday, July 25, 2008:
From the Wall Street Journal
Randy Pausch, the computer science professor who rose to fame after giving a quirky last lecture about celebrating life in the face of his terminal cancer, died Friday, July 25, 2008.
I learnt and re-learnt a LOT from his simple, yet fantastic lecture, which keeps popping to the front of all audio/video lists I maintain…..
I listened to him first around mid Jan 2008…..
My favorite quote from the last lecture by this CMU prof
“It’s not about how to achieve your dreams; it’s about how to lead your life. if you lead your life the right way, the dreams will come to you.”

May your soul rest in peace….!
