“In facing your own mortality, what final message would you leave for future generations?” That question is from the 11th Hour series from Colorado Public Television which records living testaments from distinguished individuals delivering their lasting message to the world. Roger Ebert delivered this in 1994. He passed away just a month ago on April 4th, 2013.

We spend a great deal of time in mostly trivial pursuits on the web. But the web has an enormous wealth of content that could be of value to us. However we have to invest time and concentration to take what we are given so freely. This talk by Roger Ebert is worth the time.

For many years I have enjoyed Ebert’s movie reviews on public television. Although I sometimes disagreed with his verdict, I found his insightful criticism always helpful. I find myself nodding in agreement with his 11th Hour talk.

Enjoy. And I mean it.
