Probably the Very Last Person Who is Talking About "The Last Lecture"

There are a number of people in this world who I feel were taken too soon.
River Phoenix.
Jonathan Larson.
Heath Ledger.
Chris Farley.
This list is all entertainers, because that's what I'm most interested and attached to in life. This next person is a teacher, and he didn't die young, but it really feels like he was taken well before his time.

Hanging out with my parents this weekend, they introduced me to Randy Pausch. 7 Million people have already watched this video on YouTube, and millions more on Google Video and other outlets.

So, I feel like I'm the last person to find out about this - since it was delivered over a year ago - But, I wanted to pass it along to anyone else who happen to not have seen this. I honestly believe it's worth your time. And I can honestly say that it has changed my life...

If that's not enough for you, then you can check out THIS WEBSITE, which has a five-part series of interviews with Pausch, Family, and Friends - Done by Diane Sawyer.

If you liked this, I think you would like "If I" by Demetri Martin. They are very different in execution but have a lot of fundamental similarities.
