Sad news, but news we expected eventually. Professor Randy Pausch of Carnegie-Mellon University has died of pancreatic cancer:

See my October 24, 2007 blog entry for more on this remarkable man, and his "Last Lecture" delivered at Carnegie-Mellon. It's become one of the most popular downloads on YouTube. Oprah also had him on her show, to give a Reader's Digest condensed version of the lecture.

Many of us are grateful to Randy for modeling what successful survivorship is all about.
