I've been posting and blogging this since it was brought to my attention a couple of weeks back.

Professor Randy Pausch from Carnegie Mellon University was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and gave his final lecture a month ago. Since then, he has been featured on a lot of newscast. This is the lecture in it's entirety which includes the intros. It's about an hour and a half.

Recently, he was featured on Oprah and did a condensed version of the lecture which is only 10 minutes.

Randy passed away today, a little over 11 months after he was given 3-6 months to live.

He had a good run.

After learning about his death on Friday from your Facebook wall post and one of the Simui's alphatext, (I gave her a copy of the book version of Last Lecture for her HS graduation) I decided to pay homage to the guy who influence the world by pursuing his dreams wholeheartedly with integrity that day by:

1) Getting my own copy of Last Lecture and reading it all day, and

2) Wearing my Tigger T Shirt as a statement of my "choosing" to be a Tigger and not an Eeyore.
