The Last Lecture

This is an old video and you may have seen it before. In fact, you probably have. But it deserves its place here. Here is the description from the YouTube page for the lecture.

Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch (Oct. 23, 1960 – July 25, 2008) gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed McConomy Auditorium. In his moving presentation, “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams,” Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals.

Professor Pausch gave this lecture after having been diagnosed with brain cancer. The very fact that he can give hope and inspire others to achieve in his own situation is remarkable. On top of that, the lecture itself is one that stays with you. This is the kind of real-life hero to admire. He brings me hope in humanity, that we can individually contribute to a better future.
