Manny Hernandez is a social entrepreneur, community strategist, and the author of Ning for Dummies.

Manny is also the founder of two Ning networks: TuDiabetes.com in English and EsTuDiabetes.com in Spanish. In April 2008 he helped start the Diabetes Hands Foundation, a nonprofit with the goal of having no people with diabetes feel alone and people without diabetes learning more about what it's like to live with diabetes. Since September 2007, he started writing a monthly column called "Hola Diabetes" for dLife in English and Spanish, aimed at the Latino community. Between May 2008 and March 2009, he wrote the column "Diabetes Hacker" in MyDiabetesCentral.com.

Manny comes from Venezuela. He first went to school there and then went to Cornell University (in New York state), where he obtained my M.Eng. in Electrical Engineering. Still he has found his true professional love to lie in the web space, so he eventually became a Web Product Manager. Since January 2008, he has lived with my family in the Bay Area, California.
