Randy Pausch, 1960-2008, 47.

This a really sad news, Randy Paush, whom I blogged about earlier has passed away. I guess it shouldn’t come as a big surprise, seeing as how he has been battling pancreatic cancer for awhile now, but like most unfortunate and upsetting things, it always hits harder when it really happens. Through his “last lecture” and book we couldn’t have asked for a better way exemplify how to spend the relatively short time we have in life, unfortunately it comes at a great cost, as so many things do. This may seem odd, since I had never met him, but his words really made me think, and that’s a trait great speakers have.
