So I’m on holiday at the moment in some far flung country and I’ve been taking some time to read a few books. Of course I asked my Twitter followers for some advice and Andrew Frayling from Cardiff University pointed me to The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. The book accompanies a lecture given by Randy at Carnegie Mellon University. Many universities do these lectures where professors are asked to give a talk as if it was there last one – for Randy, dying of pancreatic cancer, it really would be.
If this sounds a little morbid, it’s not. Go watch the video, read the book if you can. You won’t regret it.
