Ted Speaker: Randy Pausch

I just watch Randy Pausch:  Really achieving your childhood dreams.  Randolph Frederick "Randy" Pausch was an American professor of computer science and human-computer interaction and design at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  In this presentation Randy tell us the story of how he grew up and his dreams during that time of his life.  He continues talking about how he make them come true by never giving up on them.

After his success in life he decided to help other achieve their childhood dreams as well.  Childhood dreams are the ones that define who we could be later in life. Randy created a course called Building Virtual Worlds. In it he has 50 students form art, drama, design and CS putting into teams where they can create different types of projects.  The goal was to teach and help people in groups at a time instead one by one and explore their differences within them.

Randy’s talk is really inspirational in many ways.  It helps you understand that no matter what difficulties you encounter in life it’s never late to accomplish your dreams.  He was an example of that, he lived with pancreatic cancer and never gave up on his dreams until the day he died in 2008.   Follow the links below and see for yourself.
