socalTECH 50: Who are Southern California's Tech Up and Comers?

A couple of weeks ago, we announced the socalTECH 50--our attempt to identify Southern California's technology industry up-and-comers, the people most likely to create the next big thing, produce the next big exit or to influence the industry in a significant way. In fact, just yesterday, two of our list (Alex Kazerani and James Segil, who shared a position on the 50) produced the first exit out of our list--a big one--selling their company, EdgeCast, to Verizon for a reported $390M. We're going to be honoring the 50 on Wednesday at the Skirball Center (Tickets are still available) in a partnership with the Digital Family Reunion)--so come meet the 50 and network with the industry Wednesday evening.

So, who are the socalTECH 50? To help our readers and the industry to get to know them better, Glossi has created an online, visual magazine with the photos and bios of all of the 50, which is embedded below.

Thanks to all of the sponsors who are supporting the socalTECH 50 this year:
