We at Carnegie Mellon have been blessed to know and work with Randy Pausch and to see the profound influence he has had on our students, on entertainment technologies and on the teaching of computer science. We--all of us--are fortunate that Randy has been able to record his insights into how a good life is lived. Randy’s gifts of inspiration are no longer restricted to our lecture halls and labs; they are now here for all to read and experience.
— Jared L. Cohon, President, Carnegie Mellon University
