Sad News - Randy Pausch has Died

I blogged about him back in April.

He's the computer scientist who inspired the world with his moving, insightful and surprisingly positive approach to dealing with a terminal diagnosis.

Unfortunately he died on Friday.

Rest in peace Dr. Pausch, and thank you.

[If you're so inclined, his family has suggested the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network for donations as a tribute to Dr. Pausch. You can donate by clicking here]
