One Last Dance

by Heng-Cheong Leong, MyAppleMenu

If you were to be given a chance to write one last blog post, or to record one last podcast, or to deliver one last lecture, what will you say?

Many of us are not given this chance. Or rather, we had our last blog post, last podcast, or last lecture. Or last dinner, or last picnic, or last trip, or last what-ever. It's just that we didn't realize it was the very last. Unless, of course, we live everyday like it's the very last day of your life.

Carnegie Mellon computer-science professor Randy Pausch gave just such a "last" lecture. Lat month, he was given "just a few months" to live. And his lecture is here.
