Life, Death and the stuff in between

Every now and then something you come across shakes you up, and forces you to phase out of the daily rut and reevaluate the greater scheme of things, look at the big picture and access where you are headed.

A recent event of such sort was the sudden media focus on Randy Pausch, a Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, who happens to be dying of Cancer. What really gets to you is the fact that this man is dyeing, and does not seem too upset about the whole deal. "If I don't seem as depressed or morose as I should be, sorry to disappoint you”, not too many of us can feel or act that way. Listen to his talk and you will figure out why he can.

A truly great talk with more food for thought than most of us may not be able to digest.
