Carnegie Mellon computer science professor Randy Pausch is terminally ill; he's been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and was told he would have 3 to 6 months to live, this past September, 2007. This is his last lecture, about really achieving your childhood dreams. An important and inspiring life lesson in and of itself.

"I don't think we're going to make it," John Doerr proclaims, in an emotional talk about climate change and investment. Spurred on by his daughter, who demanded he fix the mess the world is heading for, he and his partners at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers embarked on a greentech world tour -- surveying the state of the art, from the ethanol revolution in Brazil to Wal-mart's (!) eco-concept store in Bentonville, Arkansas. KPCB is investing $200 million in green technologies to save the planet and make a profit to boot. But, Doerr fears, it may not be enough.

A rather involved & comprehensive interview w/ the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Many topics are discussed, their reasoning behind supporting Hamas, building 50 centrifuges, their views on the people of Palestine, the speech given at Columbia University, and much more. If you prefer to get your information straight from the horses mouth, here's your water....I see what I did there ;-) Then again there's always good ol' Fox 'News', CNN, MSNBC, and other conglomerates, your decision.
