Mike's random thoughts and ramblings

Randy Pausch died today

I'm sitting in a cafe getting client work done when I looked at my Gmail and the little news ticker across the top had the notification: Randy Pausch died today.

I had heard of, but hadn't seen Pausch's Last Lecture video when I picked up the audiobook of the Last Lecture and found myself laughing and crying through a long bike ride one Sunday.

If you haven't seen it or heard about it, definitely check it out. His story is pretty incredible, and the message is pretty amazing too. Actually, to abridge it perfectly, there's a quote in the Yahoo story above:

"We don't beat the reaper by living longer, we beat the reaper by living well and living fully."
