The MOST inspirational speech regarding LIFE

It's already too late to tribute this charming and inspirational speaker, and also one of the most 100 influential people in the year 2008. Randy Pausch, a young talented professor in Carnegie Mellon University, has died of pancreatic cancer. But in the process, he's teaching millions of people about living, most notably from his upbeat and adage laden lecture entitled "The Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" (here for transcript) on September 18, 2007 at Carnegie Mellon(later also on Oprah). During the lecture, Pausch was optimistic and humorous, alternating between wisecracks, insights on computer science, engineering and meaning and experience of life, advice on building multidisciplinary collaborations, working in groups and interacting with other people, offering inspirational life lessons to the rest of the world.
