Pausch Randy quotes
So what is today's talk about then? It's about my childhood dreams and how I've achieved them I've been very fortunate that way; how I believe I've been able to enable the dreams of others, and to some degree, lessons learned: I'm a professor there should be some lessons learned and how you can use the stuff you hear today to enable your dreams or enable the dreams of others. And as you get older you may find that enabling-the-dreams-of-others thing is even more fun.
