Randy Pausch: Time Management

In November 2007, Randy Pausch gave a lecture on Time Management at the University of Virginia. Even if it is not so well known compared to his last lecture, it’s one of the best lectures I’ve ever seen. And it demonstrates what a great and funny teacher the world lost.
