The following are links to lectures and webpages that feature the work and legacy of Prof. Randy Pausch. He has been a recognized pioneer in the area of virtual reality and learning for many years, but more recently gained broader recognition for giving his "Last Lecture" at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. At the time, Randy Pausch had terminal pancreatic cancer and was not given long to live, yet the title of his lecture is "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams." He died on July 25, 2008. Below are links to several versions of the lecture as well as a lecture he gave on time management as his farewell address at the University of Virginia. I also have included links to other resouces that contain good, upbeat, useful advice about other working in teams, etc.
