[Merlin](http://www.43folders.com/2008/09/08/four-years) continues to [inspire](http://www.dianakimball.com/2008/09/trying.html).
Diana mentions Randy Pausch’s [Last Lecture](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ji5_MqicxSo) 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.
While these two posts have great value to me, I fear the next few weeks. The influx of attention, conversation and links that these genuine heartfelt posts generate will be _irresistible_ for imitators.
Perhaps though, this global blogger introspection will lead to some greater universal truth?
What I know for sure is it will difficult to ignore.
