Having watched "The Last Lecture" online, a friend and fellow animator sent me the link. Honestly, I was amazed. I never had the privilege of having Randy as a professor, but his story was sad, touching, funny, and inspirational. This man has led an amazing life, and if anyone ever saw fit to make a film about him, I'd be there in a heartbeat.

Well, Hyperion is owned by Walt Disney, so I am pretty sure they would get the rights for such a project (that may have been a part of the book deal). I guess we'll see!

In USA Today, Randy says there will be no movie.

Though The Last Lecture may seem to have Hollywood written all over it, Pausch says there will be no movie. "There's a reason to do the book, but if it's telling the story of the lecture in the medium of film, we already have that," he says, referring to the video. "Besides, you lose control."

I had the privilege of hearing Randy speak three summers ago at a summer symposium for teachers of Advanced Placement Computer Science. He leaves behind a great body of work including the Alice programming environment.

Hey "D" - the next time someone in your family has a birthday, get a tank of hydrogen and about 150 balloons. Then fill em up while smoking.
