Today’s quote comes from Lynda Weinman who co-founded the very popular online learning website: Lynda.com. With formal training in humanities, Lynda is very much self taught in all her knowledge of computers and software. That knowledge led her to an early career in digital animation and special-effects. Some of her work includes Robocop 2 and Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure – it might be just me, but I find this terribly cool!

At the time of launching her website in 1995, she was teaching digital media and motion graphics and thought to keep her course resources on her site. Eventually the site evolved to selling her books, registration to the full e-learning site that it is today.

In 2013, the site got a $103 million venture capital fund. Currently, Lynda.com employs 200 full-time staff and over 140 teachers who earn royalties from their shared revenue model.
