Ynema Mangum is a product line manager for cloud computing at Sun
Microsystems. Her role is to help shape the confluence of people and
Y was a panelist at SxSWi 2008, Interactive Austin 2008, and has
produced over 100 podcasts on all kinds of technology topics. She
contributed to the book PR 2.0: New Media, New Tools, New Audiences by
Deirdre Breakenridge published by FT Press in 2008 and is on the FG2

Ynema is a change agent. She considers herself a quiet influencer and a
connector whose collaborative nature ensures success in introducing new
concepts and services into the mainstream -- even in the most complex
environments. She thrives on doing what seems to be impossible, and
enjoys taking calculated risks in her personal life -- snowboarding,
skiing, SCUBA diving or wake boarding when the season is right. She is
certified in ITIL v3 best practices and is an active sponsor of the
Austin Social Media Club.
