Randy Pausch's Last Lecture

10:07 a.m. / Posted by cogspace /

Randy Pausch, known to many for his work in promoting the positive side of games and interactive systems, gave his farewell lecture at Carnegie Mellon (September 18, 2007). This is indeed a sad occasion, as Randy is only 46 and is suffering from terminal pancreatic cancer.

The lecture follows the tradition of (hypothetical) farewell lectures by distinguished speakers at Carnegie Mellon. The main difference this time is that this is very much a 'real' farewell lecture from Randy.

Randy is a distinguished published speaker on many of the positive aspects of interactive systems and games - in particular the educational benefits.

A video of the lecture is available for viewing.
