I just wanted to share this great speech by computer science Professor Randy Pausch.

Google Video, over an hour and a half:

only a few bits really need the visuals.

Here's a story about it.

What I want to say about it is that this young brilliant guy is dying, and the college gave him the chance to say anything he wanted to a packed lecture hall. What he says will inspire you. He's a model of selflessness and living every moment to the fullest.

I think it's relevent to us because as amputees, it's easy to get bogged down in what we have lost. This terminally ill speaker can't stop focusing on what he can give. I think hearing him will make us better intactivists and better people.

Cheers,
