"Did I hear that right, you're giving out some kind of analogue, non-USB can openers," I inquired.
"Actually, they're just can openers," the Crowd Source rep manning the booth replied, adding, "But they look like USBs so some people were confused."

Meanwhile, Crowd Science has grown a little more crowded today – by at least one person. The online market research firm announced that Corey Leibow, a technology and e-commerce veteran, has been named president and CEO.
Most recently he was executive in residence at Plug and Play Tech Center, a high-tech incubator. Wonder if they have a digital, USB can opener in the works.
