Perhaps a few years late, but I just found this positively gorgeous final lecture by Randy Pausch.
As a wannabe computer science major/virtual reality geek, I’m really glad that I can directly relate to some of the work he did, and he’s got so many absolutely wonderful points throughout the entire video.
Something cool: At one point, he references a Pirates of the Carribean attraction he worked on. I remember going to that attraction, and thinking it was the coolest thing. Funny, the little ways you bump into people.
One moment that really shines: youtube
