The company sold to Eastman Kodak in 2001 and now called Kodak Gallery, was the first to connect digital photo sharing with social networking, and to develop a sophisticated, high quality process for printing digital images via the web.

“Lisa Gansky, like Al Gore, didn’t invent the internet. But she co-created the first commercial website, developed the idea of advertising online, created online photo sharing and printing, and sold companies to both Kodak and AOL. Most important Gansky gets it. She sees around corners and describes a future that seems impossible… until you realize that it’s imminent.
