“Achieving Your Childhood Dreams”

This video is a short hour and 15 minutes long. It is Randy Pausch giving a “last lecture” at Carnegie Mellon.
He was a Computer Science professor and a pioneer in the field virtual reality, but that’s not why Tech-for Everyone readers might appreciate it.
This “lecture” has been seen by over a million people and is rated 5 Stars by viewers; and was turned into a book.
Watching it might change your life.

He was 47.

Mr. Pausch was the founder of the Alice project; a free program that teaches kids how to program a computer, and they don’t even know they’re learning programming.. they think they’re writing a story.
Amazing. You can check it out at http://www.alice.org/

    • I agree.

      Send the link to your friends and family. (Though, they may have seen it. This video has been seen by a LOT of people! But, it’s worth watching again, wouldn’t you say?)
