Dying Professor Gives Last Lecture

Sad but inspiring.

Update:

Ed from Tasty Popsicle notes in the comments:

I can’t believe I learn about this from your website of all places. I had the great pleasure of taking one of Professor Randy Pausch’s classes at Carnegie Mellon University in 1998. Building 3D Virtual Worlds brought students from the arts, humanities, and computer science departments together to collaboratively work on building 3D virtual worlds. It was the best class I took while I was there from 1995-1999 earning my BFA.

His work at Disney’s Imagineering and work on the development of Alice will have a lasting impact far after his time here with us.

    Chris, you have brought me to tears today. Thank you very much for bringing this to my attention. Thank you – even if this is going to make today just a little harder.
