In the News: Lynda Weinman, Techie Entrepreneur
Lynda Weinman ’76 is a respected Web graphics and design veteran who has been at the forefront of Web development since its infancy.
Weinman epitomizes the power of interdisciplinary education. After graduating from Evergreen, Weinman opened two retail shops in California and later became an animator for the movie business. This move led to an early fascination with personal computers, which she embraced for her animation work, and, from there, she began teaching computer graphics and writing how-to books. Finally she started the online learning business Lynda.com, which she recently sold to LinkedIn for $1.5 billion.
You can find Evergreen alumni everywhere. They work at Microsoft and Apple, as college professors and kindergarten teachers, as legislators and lawyers and political activists, as doctors and vets, in Hollywood, and in field biology research stations.
