Before leaving in 2016, Angela ran integrated marketing campaigns for Rackspace. She started in 2003 and did everything from Linux support, account management, sales, product marketing and marketing. She left Rackspace in 2005 to work for PEER 1 Hosting but returned in 2009 because she was interested in the cloud computing movement. Angela is a strong believer in the power of storytelling.


  1. An informative and well presented podcast. Great stuff guys 🙂
    It would be great if you indicated the times within the podcast of the listed sections to help us navigate. (Alternatively, why not go video?!)

    • Thanks for the feedback! I did include the Chapters when I created the podcast and I see that they aren’t showing up in iTunes. Let me check on that. I do like the video idea – maybe we’ll give that a try next time around.
      Thanks again,
