The Last Lecture

What better topic for my first "daily note" than "The Last Lecture" of Prof. Randy Pausch? I happened to watch it for 3rd or 4th time this Saturday and it's still one of the most inspiring talks you could find online.

It's not so much about what he says. Most of it has been said before.
But the fact that he is a dying man with nothing to gain, makes it all sound so real and honest that it hurts.

And it's totally amazing how you finish watching a little sad, but also smiling and full of energy and love for life. And even if you cried (I guess most people do) you've also laughed a lot. A cocktail of feelings that will stick in your brain for days.
