Worth viewing, worth reflecting: Randy Pausch

Instead of the usual Sunday Six, I encourage everyone to view the Last Lecture by Randy Pausch below. It's more useful for your life than any Sunday Six that I could conjure up.Randy died recently of complications from pancreatic cancer -- he was a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon and was named one of TIME's 100 Influential Most Influential People.

He was really extraordinary (click here for more information) -- and his Last Lecture is an internet phenomenon that I've found to be amazingly inspirational.

So, if you have an hour or two to spare -- please watch this lecture. And if you have some spare change, please donate to support pancreatic cancer research in Randy's honor.

Want to know why pancreatic cancer is not as well-known or well-funded as prostate or breast cancer?

Because there aren't as many survivors. 75% of patients die within 12 months.
