Before kicking his re-election campaign into gear, President Obama met with some Silicon Valley's top players at a private dinner. The dinner was meant to discuss job growth opportunities, as well as tax reform, a national broadband initiative, and a big education budget increase. In attendance were Steve Jobs, Google's former CEO Eric Schmid, Oracle founder Larry Ellison, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, Stanford president John Hennessy, and Mark Zuckerberg. Zuck was, by far, the youngest person in the room and was granted a seat right next to President Obama. If that's not bad-ass we don't know what is.
