Hello Peter do you know where this information was generated? I'm working with professors who are analyzing the behaviors of founders in the Silicon Valley region. Right now we are trying to find different areas to gather the information. Thanks!!
Seems like the promising companies are flaming out faster than you can get the list printed.
I view the previous sentence as more sad than sarcastic.
I guess I could do a super list of all the companies that have ever appeared on the Silicon 60.....they are dropping off the list fast at the moment due to acquisitions; OneSpin Solutions being the latest.
Maybe the best that one can hope for is a dump of all companies that have ever appeared on the list and let readers figure that out from their own research. Then you would still have to contend with name changes (e.g., Silicon Forest Labs became Lighthouse Technologies before its acquisition by Mentor Graphics, where the inFact verification technology originated) and relaunches (e.g., Space Codesign in Montreal; disclaimer: I am involved in the 2.0 version of that firm). By the way, I'm not sure if Lighthouse ever appeared in earlier editions of this EE Times list but I hope that Space will, next time!
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
