Carrie Fisher: AFI Life Achievement Award 2005 (George Lucas)

After being reminded of the following quote by Randy Pausch, I knew what kind of speech has to come next:

Never underestimate the importance of having fun. I’m dying and I’m having fun. And I’m going to keep having fun every day because there’s no other way to play it.

So I’ll start this week with a hilarious speaker most of you might only know for her acting: Carrie Fisher roasting George Lucas at the AFI Life Achievement Award 2005.

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.

Randy Pausch: “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams” (The Last Lecture)

Usually, I wouldn’t go with a topic every week, but this great man deserves it.

Professor Randy Pausch passed away on July 25th. Nine month before he died from pancreatic cancer, he left behind an outstanding spoken gem. His last lecture at Carnegie Mellon University inspired millions of viewers all over the world.

You might have seen the lecture on YouTube before. This one is a longer version including speeches from friends and collegues (Steve Seabolt, Jim Foley, Jimmy Cohen and Andries "Andy" van Dam) after the lecture.

Carnegie Mellon provides a transcript [.pdf]. More information can be found at Six Minutes.

Update: Since Google Video is down, this is version no longer contains the subsequent speeches by his friends and collegues.
