Obama Meeting With Jobs, Zuckerberg, Schmidt

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.

    I agree with kcorp2003, Bill Gates or Steve Ballmer should have been invited. Or maybe then declined, who knows. Even if their market shares are slipping they still have majority and play a large part in technology and the future.

    So tell me, why is Mark Zuckerberg invited? I guess facebook apparently has some major role in creating jobs and bringing the economy back? Or maybe it has some huge effect on the technology industry and the education of the young population? Right...

  • Why would Jobs be visiting the president, if a rumor of Jobs dying is correct?
