Last night, the only place to be was at king-of-all-venture-capitalists John Doerr's house in Woodside, California, where President Barack Obama sat down with none other than Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Eric Schmidt, Oracle's Larry Ellison, Yahoo's Carol Bartz and a handful of other billionaire tech titans.
The White House Flickr feed shared the above image, taken by Pete Souza, identifying these people only as "Technology Business Leaders," though bloggers made small work of attaching names to faces. According to the the New York Times political blog, The Caucus, the remaining folks in the shot are: Cisco's John Chambers, Twitter's Dick Costolo, Netflix's Reed Hastings, Stanford University president John Hennessy, Genentech's Art Levinson and "cleantech" entrepreneur Steve Westly.
Presumably some other captains of the industry, such as Seattle-area residents Steve Ballmer and Jeff Bezos, were excluded for purely geographical reasons, but one imagines they may have been disappointed to have missed such a gathering.
The Flickr feed had a separate shot of Obama chatting with Facebook founder Zuckerberg:
Our best guess is that POTUS is asking, "How do I unfriend Boehner without him finding out?" Good one, Tima — can any of you readers do any better?
Speaking of all things Zuck, why not join our conversation on Technolog's Facebook page?
