Yippy, Inc. (YIPI) Opens ALA New Orleans 2011 Announcing New Incoming CEO

FORT MYERS, FL--(Marketwire - Jun 24, 2011) - Yippy, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: YIPI), www.yippy.com, the providers of the world's fastest, family friendly, educational search engine and web portal, reports that Marc Bigelow has formally accepted the appointment as President & CEO of Yippy, Inc. Marc is 53 years old and has served with Yippy as a consultant most recently. Yippy's incoming CEO has over 22 years of senior management experience in the educational publishing, information and new media markets and most recently served as an industry consultant and an adjunct professor at Sierra Nevada College. Marc Bigelow has during his previous career served at McGraw-Hill, Times Mirror, Thomson Learning (a division of Thomson Company) and most recently Gale Cengage. Marc will formally join Yippy July 11th and will continue to foster partnership agreements in educational and related markets as a consultant until that day.

"I am very pleased that Marc Bigelow has accepted the job as CEO of Yippy. Marc has already exhibited the leadership and market understanding that can strengthen the many positive developments Yippy is experiencing recently," says current CEO of Yippy, Rich Granville.

Granville continues, "With the introduction of our Gen 2 browser and search engine at ALA, we are ready to deliver the safest and best research tool that will bring flexibility to institutional users . Our Application Services Environment (ASE), which was coined by a friend to Yippy, Ms. Linda Starr, allows for significant opportunities in content aggregation within an even stronger browser and search environment(s)."

"Richard Granville has quietly achieved several key milestones in the Yippy design, perfecting a tool that should be better labeled a research engine than a search engine. Rich has helped ensure that Yippy has a very solid platform for the future. I have enjoyed my experience with the Yippy team and I'm excited about the reaction from potential customers and partners that I have been in contact with and those that have reached out to me. Now it is time to operationally deliver to our markets and with the flexibility behind Yippy's design we will be able to react to our customers' needs faster than any other option available. I particulary look forward to being with Yippy users, potential customers and partners at ALA and ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) over the next few days," says Marc Bigelow.

Rich Granville will continue with Yippy as Chief Global Strategy Officer, and serving on the board for Yippy, Inc.
