Jamie Yap

Journalist

Jamie Yap covers the compelling and sometimes convoluted cross-section of IT and homo sapiens, which really refers to technology careers, startups, Internet, social media, mobile tech, and privacy stickles. She has interviewed suit-wearing C-level executives from major corporations as well as jeans-wearing entrepreneurs of startups. Prior to tech reporting, she spent three years after graduating from university as a print and online writer chronicling the feats and foibles of another species known as celebrities in TV, movies and music lands. Jamie is also an inner fangirl of sci-fi, comics, Comic-Con and special featurettes on DVDs.

Jamie Yap has nothing to disclose. She doesn't hold investments in the organizations she covers.
