    PandoList: Meet the Companies Behind the Robot Uprising

    I don’t think there’s anything more interesting than an entire PandoList dedicated to companies making cool robots. Based on the interviews we did this week, I’d say we’re making huge strides towards a world where we’re interacting with robots in our day to day activities. We interviewed Keller Rinaudo from Romotive, Charles Grinnell from Harvest Automation, Garratt Gallagher of Bilibot, Paul…

    PandoList: Money-making Companies You Don’t Know in Silicon Valley

    Many Silicon Valley startups today are all about user acquisition and scale. Business model-shmisiness shmodel. But for every Twitter or Facebook that’s made it, there are plenty of other quiet revenue-generating machines dotting the landscape of Silicon Valley. Some are even profitable, or at least, have the ability to be profitable. They’re not highly publicized, so don’t be surprised if…

    PandoList: High Tech Fashionistas

    It’s a little bit funny that this list is on extremely stylish and trendy people in the tech world because a) that seems a little bit like an oxymoron and b) I’m probably one of the least trendy people on staff. Regardless, we put together quite the impressive list, and I also tried to get as much fashion advice as…

Today’s list is on teenage entrepreneurs, and these kids are so amazingly smart that it gave me a little bit of an inferiority complex. Seriously.
