Talking Squawk, the official "Squawk Box" blog, provides tidbits, insights, and some sarcastic reflections on the WEEK THAT WAS and the WEEK TO COME from the notepad of the show's senior executive producer.
It's one of the coolest AND hottest IPOs in a long time.
GoPro was founded by CEO Nick Woodman 12 years ago, and now it's a $3 billion HD-video, action-sports camera maker with plans to become much, much more.
Squawk co-host Becky Quick got the first interview with Woodman before the stock even opened Thursday, and got the whole story from his humble beginnings as a surfer to becoming a billionaire all before the age of 40.
(Watch the entire Woodman interview in the above video for his thoughts on the one thing all successful entrepreneurs share. For excerpts, click here for how his wife's fashion sense helped raise seed money, and here for why he doesn't like taking bathroom breaks when he works.)
Scott McNealy, co-founder of Sun Microsystems stopped by (fresh off his week of caddying for his 18-year-old son Maverick in the U.S. Open) and shared his thoughts on the future of the personal computer.
Alain Monie, CEO of tech supply chain company Ingram Micro, also weighed in Tuesday on the death of the PC—saying they're "less of the center of the universe" but will still play a part in our lives for years to come.

Grover Norquist is the president of Americans for Tax Reform.
He came on the show Monday and blasted the federal government for "abusively taxing" Americans living overseas and U.S. companies competing in a global economy.
This is the reason some U.S. companies are looking to bolt for more favorable tax shores, he said.
"We do damage to American-owned companies that France doesn't do to French-owned companies," he continued. "Stupider than France is not where you want to be on tax policy."
We had a who's who of the Republican party stop by this week on Squawk.
Squawk co-host Joe Kernen: "Yes they steal all kinds of stuff these days … for example, what would my underwear be worth?"
Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has apologized for falling asleep and arriving nearly two hours late to a dinner with marketers last week.
Oh well, moving on. What's $20.5 million lost between friends?
Are there any cars left to recall?
Just for the record, neither were the rest of us, NOT.
