In September Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon University, gave his last lecture, telling the audience that he would soon die of pancreatic cancer. But those may not be his last public words after all.
As I have mentioned before, this is a great inspirational story of a dying man and his thoughts on life. Well, this lecture has springboarded him into the limelight and even as he has found that he is still dying, it might not be as quickly as he thought. However, he is still dying, but it is not without publicity.
Check out this article about his notoriety now from the New York Times.
