How to live and die April 11, 2008Posted by Matsu in News, News and politics, Random.
This week I watched this ABC Primetime report about the life of Dr. Randy Pausch, a Computer Science professor at Carnegie Mellon University.
At 46 years old Dr. Pausch received news that he had terminal cancer and was given only 3 to 6 months to live. About one month later, he gave his last lecture about his life, dreams, and information on how the audience should live. Since then, a new book has been written about how he has spent his last days living life to the fullest and being an inspiration to many people on how to live and demonstrates how one might deal with a terminal illness.
Below is a Wall Street Journal video interview of the author of the book and is a good starting point to get the background information about the life and expected death of Dr. Pausch.
If this has piqued your interest and you want to see for yourself what everyone has been talking about, you can see the recording of the Last Lecture below.
You might want to visit Dr. Pausch’s website for additional information and videos. Once you are there, you will also find updated informaiton about his current health condition. As of the this week, he is still alive.
