Want a Tropo.com USB Bottle Opener?

I have to say this is one of the coolest giveaways I've seen for bit... yes, it's for a service of my employer, Voxeo, but regardless, it's a cool piece of schwag (and I had nothing to do with it):


It worked out perfectly when I wanted to open a beer for a late night of writing blog posts! (Now, whether the beer helped with the coherency of the blog posts is a different topic...)

What's even cooler from a geek point-of-view, is that the contents of the USB drive are all managed using the Git version control system! Adam Kalsey wrote about how he assembled the drive content using git, and particularly git submodules, and then about how he loaded the content onto the USB drives. Pretty cool stuff!

If you'd like to get your hands on one of these USB bottle openers, all you have to do is speak about Tropo at an event or host a meetup - the Tropo team will ship out a meetup kit that includes a few of these.
