While I was reading this story in the Mercury News about President Obama’s dinner yesterday with a number of Silicon Valley tech titans, an odd thought occurred to me: Boy, I’d hate to make the seating chart for that dinner!
How do you prioritize Larry Ellison, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Eric Schmidt, Reed Hastings? Who gets to sit near the President? Who has to sit far away?
So when saw this photo in the paper, I thought I’d add some value and turn it into a seating chart for your interest and amusement. In the end, having Obama sit between Zuckerberg and Jobs wasn’t that surprising, but the structure among the rest is still fun. (Bear in mind the dinner was held at Doerr’s house, so he and his wife were the hosts.)
