Brick walls are there to show our dedication

You need 76 minutes to watch this. But do take the time!

Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch, who is dying from pancreatic cancer, gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed McConomy Auditorium. In his moving talk, "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams," Pausch talked about his lessons learned and gave advice to students on how to achieve their own career and personal goals.

Here are some memorable quotes to get you interested.

you forgot the best quote, which is about him buying a Mac :-)

Have to pause to pick up the Integra folks, but will watch. Thanks for the link

Thanks for making everybody curious. :-)

Seen this some time ago - I was actually wondering last week if he was still alive or not. A superb presentation.

I like the twist at the end the best, where he tells you he's been playing with your head...

Wel, that was actually worth spending an hour to watch.

Thanks Volker...

Wow... just wow.

Having someone like him talking about karma and dreams coming through...
I really can't decide whether it's heartbreaking or the most inspiring thing I have seen in a long time.

It's probably both.

Amazing talks—I perused a number of his lectures on Google video and from the university pages a couple of months back, and the material is so inspiring.

Watched this a few months ago and it's the best lecture I've ever seen. That's saying something considering my tenure in college.
