Dr. Randy Pausch Farewell Lecture at Carnegie Mellon University

Jonna recorded an episode of Oprah in which Dr. Pausch, a Computer Science professor suffering from terminal pancreatic cancer, gives his “farewell lecture”, apparently an exercise at the university where you give a lecture acting as if it was your last. In this case it is. Dr. Pausch provides an extremely inspirational message.

This video is basically a series of excerpts, but inspiring nonetheless.

The university has a page where you can order the lecture on DVD. You can also visit Dr. Pausch’s personal site.
