Randy Pausch Last Lecture

Randy Pausch, the Carnegie Mellon University computer scientist whose "last lecture" about facing terminal cancer became an Internet sensation and a best-selling book, died Friday. He was 47.

"Almost all of us have childhood dreams; for example, being an astronaut, or making movies or video games for a living. Sadly, most people don’t achieve theirs, and I think that’s a shame. I had several specific childhood dreams, and I’ve actually achieved most of them. More importantly, I have found ways, in particular the creation (with Don Marinelli), of CMU’s Entertainment Technology Center of helping many young people actually *achieve* their childhood dreams." - Randy Pausch

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

I know I am one day late to comment on this.
(Well, I do have a day job).

What can I say.
Zoli saved me a lot of typing...

Maybe they would have called it redux-model-2...

BlackBerry Thunder | I know why...but why?!

I saw this post on Techmeme today.

It seems as Blackberry is exploring / going towards a touchscreen keyboard.

I know why... But WHY?!

I think that the Blackberry's keyboard is may be the last big advantage for business users, when it come to the Blackberry VS. iPhone question.

I hope the Blackberry Bold will be good enough...

How to reduce noise in your Facebook homepage

Problem description:

You open your Facebook homepage in the morning and see that more than 50 new news/events/photos and other activities were added to your page.
You cannot find interesting updates from your friends...

Problem source:
1-3 of your "friends" keep sending updates, links, posts, pokes and other "useful" inputs to you.

Find this "friends" and remove them from your list...

Read updates and stay connected with people that care about you and appreciate your time. Some may define them as FRIENDS.

FireFox 3...Not on my Mac (yet)

I did try.

I've waited to the 'official' version.
I've contributed to FireFox 3 download record.
I've updated all the add-ons what where available (based on my previous post).
I've re-installed Flash player and other tools.

And what did I get? A 'Windows Vista' experience... Crash after crash and ugly fonts in Hebrew sites.

Back to FireFox 2.
