Steve Jobs, Apple's chief executive who left on indefinite medical leave last month, showed up at Thursday's tech dinner with President Obama in his trademark black turtleneck and was given one of the best seats of the night -- on Obama's left. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg shared the honor by being seated on Obama's right. (Zuckerberg decided to forgo his signature graying black hoodie for a striped button-down and jacket.)
All were meeting at the home of venture capitalist John Doerr in Woodside, Calif., according to Reuters. Other guests of the night included Larry Ellison, CEO of Oracle, Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz, Cisco Systems CEO John Chambers, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, Genentech chairman Art Levinson and Google's Eric Schmidt. Stanford University president John Hennessy and former state controller Steve Westly filled out the guest list.
