PITTSBURGH - Randy Pausch, the Carnegie Mellon University computer scientist whose "last lecture" about facing terminal cancer became an Internet sensation and a best-selling book, died Friday. He was 47.
Randy Pausch was my "sensei" for life. I watched and re-watched his video many times over the past year as I struggled with various challenges in my life. The world is a sadder place without him. If you haven't watched his amazing "Last Lecture," yet, you should.
