    Default 'Last Lecture' Professor Randy Pausch Dies at 47



    Randy Pausch, the Carnegie Mellon computer-science professor with terminal cancer whose "Last Lecture" became a YouTube sensation in late 2007, died early Friday morning.

    Pausch died at his home in Chesapeake, Va., where he had moved from Pittsburgh last fall to be closer to relatives, said Carnegie Mellon spokeswoman Anne Watzman.

    Pausch's wife, Jai, put out a statement early Friday thanking "the millions of people who have offered their love, prayers and support."

    "Randy was so happy and proud that the lecture and book inspired parents to revisit their priorities, particularly their relationships with their children," she said. "The outpouring of cards and e-mails really sustained him."

    "He was a brilliant researcher and gifted teacher," said Carnegie Mellon President Jared L. Cohon in a statement run by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "Carnegie Mellon — and the world — are better places for having had Randy Pausch in them."

    On Thursday, an unnamed friend of Pausch's had posted on his behalf to the news page of Pausch's personal area on the Carnegie Mellon Web site.

    I read his book. He seemed like a pretty decent guy. Hope he is at peace and his family is okay.
    I may not go down in history, but I will go down on your sister.

    RIP man, what an inspiration. We all take a dirt nap, but it is how people remember us is what counts.

    The book has been flying out of Amazon today. It's been pretty popular anyway, but today was pretty crazy.

    RIP Randy.

    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen
