Goodbye, Professor

Sad news upon opening my mail this morning that Randy Pausch, a computer scientist and professor at Carnegie Mellon Univ. and all around spectacular human being, has died. You probably all know him from his famous last lecture that has been on the internet and You Tube and reprised on Oprah and finally, in book format. When I first heard it, I emailed it to everyone I knew - not so much for the content although it was excellent, but because I wanted everyone to "meet" this incredibly decent guy. I have had a link to his home page under my items "of interest" on the side of this blog. If you haven't yet seen his lecture, please go to it. It's lengthy, make some tea, settle in. It's worth the time and the listen.
