The Red Herring magazine has named a number of Southern California-based firms to its annual list of Red Herring 100 North America finalists. The magazine said this week that Amp'd Mobile, DriveCam, Entropic Communications, iRise, MovieBeam, Nereus Pharmaceuticals, Newport Media, Revver, SpotRunner, Streamload, TagWorld, Tarari, and Xencor had been named to its finalists list, all Southern California's technology firms.
