Along with most of the internet I found out about him after his Last Lecture and the resultant press.  I read he died on the 25th.  He was an interesting man and while he wasn’t special in having terminal cancer, he was special in the way he dealt with that knowledge and how he continued to live his life.  I respect that. 

Anyway, his talk on achieving your childhood dreams is below along with a few links.  I also like his time management lecture – for all the procrastinators out there.
