I was incredibly sad to hear that Randy Pausch died today. What an amazing life... too short though it was.
"I knew what I was doing that day," he wrote in the introduction of his best-selling book, also titled The Last Lecture. "Under the ruse of giving an academic lecture, I was trying to put myself in a bottle that would one day wash up on the beach for my children."
I know that millions of good wishes are going out to his wife and children. I guess I'd just like mine to be among them.
