How many of you are familiar with Randy Pausch and his last lecture on achieving childhood dreams? It is an inspiring, amazing and heartfelt lecture. I encourage all mylotters to search for the video on youtube.com or go to http://download.srv.cs.cmu.edu/~pausch/

I know this discussion was started a few months ago but Randy Pausch was just featured on Oprah.. which, oddly I never watch, but I happened to spot as I walked through the room and the tv was still on. I found his personality quite captivating and thought I'd bump up this topic to see if anyone else saw the show? Did you do like me and go looking for the full lecture (he did a shortened version for Oprah)? I watched it on youtube and it's a little over an hour. I then emailed the URL to both of my girls (they are still young enough to live at home), my sister and also a good friend of mine. I encouraged them to take the time to watch. So far, one of my girls and my friend have seen it and have also been touched by it. While I think most people will take away something subjective after hearing him, I know I was glad I watched. Anyone else?
