drone1 Because Chris Anderson left Wired magazine to run a drone company here in San Diego.

That’s right—the editor-in-chief of a big, glossy Condé Nast title gave up his chiefhood to move here and build a business with our very own 26-year-old robotics hobbyist, Jordi Muñoz. Visit 3drobotics.com to learn more about their genius, direct-to-consumer (yes, we said consumer) drones.

Jason Russell and Oprah

2Because one of our local filmmakers (Jason Russell) can go from creating the most viral video in history (KONY 2012) and inspiring a global movement to a public nervous breakdown to turning a new leaf, landing an Oprah interview, and launching his most successful campaign yet.

Qualifying rounds are this month and three San Diego Yacht Clubbers are already in the new Red Bull Youth America’s Cup, representing the best skippers on the planet.

4 Because our big publically traded companies aren’t run by a bunch of suits. They’re run by people who run.

Last year, 247 Active Network employees in Sorrento Valley raised more than $43,000 (via various runs and triathlons) for local charities like Challenged Athletes Foundation—and they probably burned about ten gazillion calories while doing it.

5 Because every fifth-grader in THIS TOWN is carrying a school-issued iPad.

Well, sort of. The SD Unified School District bought 20,000 iPads last year, and we’re betting we’ll produce an entire future generation of Jordi Muñozes (see #1).
