The "Last Lecture" - Must See

Every once in a while I like to spend some time watching TED talks at ted.com. They have talks on a wide variety of subjects and are almost invariably worth watching.

I came across one this morning on their site that is truly inspirational so I thought I would create a post about it and hopefully others can learn a thing or two from him as well.

This is a talk that Randy Pausch gave in 2007 after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. It is a moving talk about achieving childhood dreams (among other things;) ) and I highly recommend taking the time to watch it in its entirety. The last few sentences really made me think.
