Randy Pausch, a computer science professor just gave his final lecture at CMU... and luckily it's available on video for all of us to watch.
I've admired Randy's work for years, as he started the Alice project, to teach kids computer science by letting them create and animate their own virtual worlds, and it's great to hear him talk about how the idea came about, and where it's going. It's also great to hear him so pleased that it'll be a part of his legacy.
That's because Randy's dying of cancer, and has just a few months left. It's one of the most amazing lectures I've ever seen, and I can't say anything more than it made me wish I'd had him as a professor.
