In Memory of Dr Randy Pausch

This post is not about a favourite thing.

However, this post is related to a favourite book.

Last Friday, Carnegie Mellon professor Dr. Randy Pausch who wrote The Last Lecture has passed away at the age of 47 after a brave battle with pancreatic cancer. Anyone who has been with a cancer patient knows that it takes a lot of courage, determination and faith to be able to stand in the battle.

Dr. Pausch not only fought bravely, he has inspired millions of people when he delivered his last lecture in the university and wrote the best-selling book. There are countless quotes worth remember in his book, and his contribution to his area of expertise (i.e. Computer Science) has left a legacy that many should seek to continue.
