[Merlin]( continues to [inspire](

Diana mentions Randy Pausch’s [Last Lecture]( which is getting a lot of attention with his recent passing. Many people are probably already in a mood to seriously consider their life’s course.

Perhaps though, this global blogger introspection will lead to some greater universal truth?

What I know for sure is it will difficult to ignore.
