Doc pointed me to this video. It’s 1 hour 15 minutes long and amazing. Its about Achieving Your Childhood Dreams. A perfect title and a great lecture by Randy Pausch a VR specialist an fun loving guy. Here is what wikipedia says about the lecture.
Pausch delivered his “Last Lecture,” titled “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams,” at CMU on September 18, 2007. This talk was modeled after an ongoing series of lectures where top academics are asked to think deeply about what matters to them, and then give a hypothetical “final talk,” i.e., “what wisdom would you try to impart to the world if you knew it was your last chance?”
Here is what wikipedia says about him:
Randy Pausch (born October 23, 1960) is a Professor of Computer Science, Human-Computer Interaction, and Design at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States and a best-selling author, who achieved worldwide fame for his “The Last Lecture” speech on September 18, 2007 at Carnegie Mellon University
He has terminal cancer and made this amazing Last Lecture about Achieving Your Childhood Dreams. It is not sad, its inspiring and a lecture which I recommend highly. I hope I can get close to his way of thinking and doing. Especially because I will be around
