These are the men and women out there changing the world by "disrupting" the way we live, work, and play. Most are young, smart, and geeky. But some of them have ideas that are going to make them very, very rich (and then they won't care how geeky they are because they'll have supermodels on each arm).
Next week, you'll meet a whole bunch of them on "Squawk" including the heads of Poshmark, Tapad, Menlo Ventures, Sherpa, Github, Stripe, Nest Labs, App Annie, Google Ventures and Rockmelt.
What a Weiner
Joe proves his manhood by proving he can say Weiner on national TV (and even make Becky say it) and no one can stop him. "Weiner" Weiner" "Weiner" (video)
In case you are new, it's one of "Squawk Box's" oldest traditions. After the show, Joe and Becky compete every day to see who can be the first to solve the "Word Jumble" puzzle in the newspaper.
After being on a roll a few weeks ago, last week was a disaster for Becky. This week wasn't much better on the scoreboard; however I should note both contestants unscrambled almost all the words in each puzzle. Joe just beat Becky to more of the "answer riddles" you have to solve with letters from all the unscrambled words (yes, geeks!)
This week's score: Joe three, Becky one.
Words we stumbled on when jumbled, Becky: skycit (sticky) upalrl (plural); Joe didn't have any stumbles.
Because Joe won the week: He gets another bonus jumbled word: ypgmur
