Our mission is to Spread Knowledge.
Thinkster was founded in 2013 by childhood friends Eric Simons and Albert Pai when they realized how difficult it was to learn from free online resources. Two years later, Thinkster's project based courses now power the learning of millions of people around the globe. Our learners are using their skills to create world changing products, provide for themselves & their families, forge tools that augment research about the universe & this blue planet we call home — amongst many other amazing pursuits.
Our small team still has a long way to go to complete our mission. Join us on Thinkster Pro, keep up to date with us on Twitter, or drop us a line if you're interested in authoring on Thinkster.
Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
