Professor touched the world with "Last Lecture"

Shortly after Carnegie Mellon University professor Randy Pausch, 47, learned he had just months to live, he delivered a lecture that has inspired millions. "If I don't seem as depressed or morose as I should be, sorry to disappoint you," he said in the Sept. 18, 2007, standing room-only lecture that has been viewed by millions on YouTube, transformed into a best-selling book and condensed for Oprah viewers. "I'm dying, and I'm having fun," Pausch said in his lecture. Pausch died Friday at his home in Chesapeake, Va. The New York Times , The Washington Post , Los Angeles Times
