Randy Pausch (1960-2008) Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams

A few years ago, I stumbled upon this lecture by Randy Pausch on Oprah.com before he passed away in 2008. He was battling pancreatic cancer, and this lecture was actually dedicated to his three kids. Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch gave his last lecture at the university on Sept. 18, 2007 entitled, "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" and the lecture went viral on YouTube before he was invited to speak on Oprah. His main advice is to "tell the truth, all the time."

A very inspirational individual to his students and those around him
