Councilman Bill Peduto read a proclamation today making November 19, 2007 Randy Pausch Day in the City of Pittsburgh.
Hopefully, most of you will recall that Randy Pausch is the former Carnegie Mellon University professor who gave a truly inspiring final lecture there on September 18, 2007.
The lecture gained notice on national news shows and Oprah.
Pausch was unable to appear in council chambers for the proclamation, but he did participate via speaker phone.
WSJ.com did a nice piece on the professor:
