Professor Randy Pausch

(1960 – 2008)

Pausch was a professor of computer science Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA.

Tim Minchin

Born 7 October 1975 Tim Minchin is an Australian comedian, actor, writer, musician and director.  He wrote the music and lyrics for the acclaimed Matilda The Musical.

I love Minchin’s work for his unique approach to humourous observations, often put to music.
