This is about a certain fellow who honestly, I would not even heard of nor have any idea what his life is all about. Good thing , make that one of the best things, about the web is that good news spread as much as bad news so it kind of even things out (unlike print where you can't counter the negatives unless you're the publisher).
Anyway, meet (and bid farewell to) Mr. Randy Pausch.
Thanks to Tony Cangiano (here and here) for introducing me to the man. And better watch Randy's last lecture. The man really knew how to make an exit fun.
In the hearts of the persons he has inspired and continue to do so, he lives.
