The business end of technology gets a lot of media attention -- who's up, who's down, how many billions a giant company made this quarter. But far from the Fortune 500 and the Nasdaq, there's another list that people in the tech world pay close attention to. It's the annual list of top innovators under 35 from the MIT Technology Review.

This year's list is just out. It's full of game makers, health care hackers, engineers and people hoping to build new energy economies. Jason Pontin, editor-in-chief of the MIT Technology Review, joins Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson to discuss.
