The Last Lecture

My step-mother tuned me into this lecture by the now-famous Carnegie Mellon professor, Randy Pausch. I was reminded of it again yesterday, when the Chronicle reported he is doing well.

Be warned, if you haven't yet watched it--there is not an single shred of self-sympathy in his presentation, but I still got choked up at times.

An earlier reporting from the Chronicle.

What does this have to do with libraries? It's inspiration, pure and simple.
