Randy Pausch Dies


I hate to be the one to break the news if you have not already heard.


It was a little unrealistic to hope for a miracle. This makes me sad.

    Don’t feel so bad. Most don’t have the chance to say goodbye, much less given a chance that they’ll have a forum to do so.

  2. RB says:

    Whoa. I apologize for my terrible grammar. I blame the booze.

  3. Larry says:

    Yet strangely enough, I did hope for a cure. Very sad.

    Feel better for the message he leaves us all with, and be better for it.

    As I posted this weekend… (http://blogs.msdn.com/mthree/archive/2008/07/26/pausch-072608.aspx)…

    Here are the seven things that mattered most to Pausch:

    Always Have Fun

    Dream Big — Give yourself permission to dream.

    Ask for What You Want — More often than you’d suspect, the answer you’ll get is, “Sure.”

    Dare To Take a Risk.

    Look for the Best In Everybody

    Make Time for What Matters — Time is all you have. And you may find one day that you have less than you think.

    Let Kids Be Themselves

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

    So re-read the list above and have fun as long as you can get away with it.

    I am so sad to hear about his death.  His life, his book and his words inspired me.  My thoughts and prayers are with his family

    My  Father also shot pictures off of the television of the moon landing. Randy was the 4th person I had never met for whom I cried upon the news of his death. Claudia
