This past week at lynda.com we had an impressive showcase of talent.
Dave Schultze is a new author at lynda.com. He is recording Rhino training for those of you in the 3D field. He teaches Toy Design at Otis College of Art and Design, and his body of work is impressive to say the least. You may already be familiar with the toys and products he has deigned for his company SchultzeWORKS, such as the singing toothbrushes for Hasbro.

The beautiful and sleek Philco PC was featured in any number of magazines, but most recently, it was entered in the International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA Awards).

Dave was in good company with Chris Orwig, David Blatner, and Deke McClelland all working away in the recording booths and live action stages to bring you some new training. We took all of the authors and a few local content managers out on the town for some creative brainstorming and pasta. We are looking forward to sharing their training with you soon.

Hello members! I’m Cynthia Scott, the new Program Director for Web & Interactive Design here at lynda.com.
One of the reasons I’m working at lynda.com is that I believe in the power of transformation. I have seen how people can light their own fire by taking advantage of the rich, deep quality of resources at lynda.com. It is an honor to be part of the team.

Last week at lynda.com, all of our off-site staff authors, acquisitions managers, content managers, and the like were in town for the company holiday party and to take part in week-long think-tank meetings to plan the content for the lynda.com Online Training Library® in the coming months. It’s always inspiring to get everyone together, and admittedly, a bit exhausting to generate so many great ideas!

To let off a little steam and relax, the entire content development team went to dinner and a movie. Not just any movie, though! One of our very own cinematographer/directors here at lynda.com, Jacob K. Cunningham, screened his first film Thy Will Be Done in downtown Ventura. It was great to see so many people at the screening, and to support one of our own talented people in their creative endeavors.
