In Memoriam: Randy Pausch (1960 – 2008)

Randy Pausch: Last LectureRandy Pausch, the man who moved millions with his Last Lecture, died on July 25th.

A book allows me to cover many, many more stories from my life and the attendant lessons I hope my kids can take from them. … The book is a far more personal look at my childhood dreams and all the lessons I’ve learned. Putting words on paper, I’ve found, was a better way for me to share all the yearnings I have regarding my wife, children and other loved ones.

I am deeply saddened that his candle burns no more, but I am joyful that it burned so bright. He taught so much to so many.
