Randy Pausch (known for The Last Lecture) died on Friday, and I've been reading the tributes and watching yet more videos - and crying.
But I thought he'd rather we listen to what he wanted to teach us, so here's one more bit of Randy wisdom, from his interviews with Diane Sawyer:
I've never found anger to make a situation better. And right now, I've got a finite amount of time and I can spend that time angry or I can spend that time doing something productive and worthwhile, and having fun.So let's all go do something worthwhile, and have some fun, in remembrance of Randy.
(Also worth noting, from the Carnegie Mellon University web site: "The family requests that donations on his behalf be directed to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, 2141 Rosecrans Ave., Suite 7000, El Segundo, CA 90245, or to Carnegie Mellon's Randy Pausch Memorial Fund, which the university will use primarily to support continued work on the Alice project.")
