Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, and Eric Schmidt walk into a bar. The bartender says, “Hey, I’m Barack Obama.”
Not funny? That’s because it wasn’t really a joke. The setting will likely not be a bar, but the four leaders of arguably the most influential entities in the world will be meeting on Thursday with other business leaders in San Francisco. Will the sheer gravity of the event tilt the world on its axis?
Throw in GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt and it just might happen.
“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.
As the President pushes his State of the Union vision of increased innovation and technological advancements, the key players will gather to hear his “pitch.”
Our only question: Where’s Steve Ballmer?
Update: It looks like The Oatmeal answered our question.
