The Last Lecture
« on: June 08, 2009, 10:01:40 AM »
Have you ever heard about Randy Pausch and his "Last Lecture"?

He was a professor at the Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and he was diagnosed with cancer. After the diagnose, he decided to do a last special lecture about "Achieving His Childhood Dreams". He did this lecture during our time in the US in September 2007.

I post this, because one of his dreams was to become an Imagineer and he really achieved it and worked for WDI for half a year. He is a professor for virtual reality and at WDI he was involved in such a project. In this lecture he also talked about his time at WDI.

He died in July 2008.

Here you can find some informations about him and "The Last Lecture":

This site is about the book he wrote and it was published by Disney owned Hyperion Books.
