It is a small world. i had ordered his book by the same name and got it today. And I am reading it now.And his stuff is the stuff of legends.
I had also watched it...just have one word to say about it...awesome...almost had me choked at the end of it...
Would recommend each and everyone to have a look at this great video...really something...
Wow, just wow. Just sat through the whole 1 hour lecture and I almost choked at the end. Man you just wish you had such teachers/role models when you were growing up. The lecture was not only inspirational but also had many "head fakes" (you will understand it when you see/read the lecture) like how coming in touch with certain individuals can change your life for ever.
Randy Pausch, the professor at Carnegie Mellon University who inspired countless students in the classroom and others worldwide through his highly acclaimed last lecture, has died of complications from pancreatic cancer. He was 47.
Also a Carnegie Mellon alumnus, Pausch co-founded the Entertainment Technology Center and led researchers who created Alice, a revolutionary way to teach computer programming. He was widely respected in academic circles for a unique interdisciplinary approach, bringing together artists, dramatists and designers to break new ground by working in collaboration with computer scientists.
