Goodbye Randy

Randy Pausch passed away on Friday after a two year struggle with Pancreatic Cancer.  I am proud to have worked with Randy and CMU and to have been his friend. CMU posted a short obituary here.

Randy was a first class researcher in Operating Systems, Computer Graphics and Human Computer Interfaces.   As a current PhD candidate, I can only hope that I could approach his level of contribution.

The last time I saw Randy was back in the 1990's, but he will always be remembered by me for his PhD thesis and for his "Last Lecture".

May you rest in God's Lap, and may your family be comforted.
Goodbye Randy
