Obituary: Randy Pausch | Science | The Guardian: "Randy Pausch
The academic whose Last Lecture became an inspirational internet phenomenon"
Saw Randy Pausch's "Last Lecture" some time ago and found it to be one of the most inspiring things I've seen in a long time. Strangely sad to hear that he's passed away when I never knew him or had any other connection with him other than that one short online video. If you didn't see it when it first came out, watch it. He's left an amazing legacy - a creative educator who reached out and touch many lives... and showed that even when there doesn't seem to be any hope left, there is always hope left.
