A dying professor gives his final lecture (http://carlonhaas.com/dying-47-year-old-professor-gives-exuberant-last-lecture/). This is an awesome, awesome lecture, one worth every minute of watching/listening. I just put it on my computer at work and listened through headphones while getting stuff done.

Shit! Yes it is. Dur!

I mean "Of course it's Randy. That's what it says right there in the title. Are your eyes deceiving you Allen?"

Although you are a little late to the party Scott it was indeed a great speech...(CrossFit posted this on their main site a week or two ago).

I don't check the front page of CF often as I'm not currently doing WODs. I've had it starred in Google Reader for the past week waiting for a chance to listen to it.

Tonight on Primetime on ABC they did a hour about The Last Lecture and Randy and his family. I'm not sure if you can get it online but I'm sure you can track it down somewhere. It was a very powerful and moving hour.

Inspiring.

His lecture on Time Management (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5784740380335567758) is also excellent. I'm listening to it right now (as I read the message boards...).

Randy Pausch passed away yesterday morning (7/25).

I keep thinking about my kids and what he said during his interview with Diane Sawyer.

"There is a sadness that comes when I think about my kids...and it's not so much a: I won't get the experience of being a dad...more that they won't have me for them...The metaphor I use is someone is going to push my family off a cliff pretty soon and I won't be there to catch them and that breaks my heart." - Randy Pausch - Primetime Live Interview

He contributed. RIP, Professor.

We all are taking the big sleep one day, no avoiding it.....so may we all contribute back a small percentage of what he did in his life.

Man is not remembered by what he says he will do.....but just by what he does with the time he is given.
