Obama Meeting With Jobs, Zuckerberg, Schmidt
Getting techie with the President.
Barack Obama is the most tech savvy president that the U.S. has had yet. Tonight he'll be hosting a dinner event meeting with tech leaders in California.
According to ABC News, Obama will be meeting with Google CEO Eric Schmidt, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and Apple CEO Steve Jobs. The latter participant draws some interest after tabloid reports of his deteriorating health.
This won't be the first time that Jobs and Obama have met, though, as the two met last year for around 45 minutes, supposedly discussing technology, education and job creation.
“The president and the business leaders will discuss our shared goal of promoting American innovation, and discuss his commitment to new investments in research and development, education and clean energy,” a White House official said.
This would follow along Obama's State of the Union plans that he outlined in his speech last month.
