President Met with Zuckerberg & Internet Leaders


President Obama privately met to discuss eCommerce, entrepreneurship, job creation, the economy with Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), Eric Schmidt (Google), Steve Jobs (Apple), Carol Bartz (Yahoo), Dick Costolo (Twitter), Reed Hastings (Netflix), Larry Elison (Oracle), John Chambers (Cisco), among others unidentified. IDG reported that role of Social Media in recent protests across Egypt, Algeria and other countries was discussed. The only White House photo released from the meeting was that of the President with Zuckerberg, Bartz, and Schmidt. Of course we will not get all the details since this was a closed meeting, but clearly demonstrates the immense power of the Internet leaders to have a private audience with the President.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
