If you haven’t heard about dying professor Randy Pausch you are not living. He said a great line:

“Walls are there for a reason: they let us prove how badly we want things”

Get inspired by his video.

    Noah – great quote, especially for us genealogists who hit “brick walls” all the time. Professor Pausch is such an amazing inspiration in so many ways.

    Noah,
    I have heard his speech and it is truly inspirational. the fact that he did this while dying is amazing.
    Are you back in the states yet? I am trying to get out to SF for the Web 2.0 Expo again this year, so if I make it, we need to hook up.

    Will

    Very inspiring. He had many great points, though this was one of the better ones. “Brick walls keep others out” Interesting…

    Thanks for sharing. Needed it!

    @Noah,
    So you will be stateside very soon then! The Expo is the last part of April, I think like the 25-28? I am pressing to get out there, so if I do, I will buy you 2 Odwallas (on me, now that I no longer work for AOL)
