U.S. President Barack Obama entertained the captains of the IT industry during a dinner, in which he talked mostly about job creation and education.

The invited group of Silicon Valley executives included Doerr; Cisco Systems’ CEO John Chambers; Google CEO Eric Schmidt; Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg; Stanford University President John Hennessy; Twitter CEO Dick Costolo; Oracle CEO Larry Ellison; Netflix CEO Reed Hastings; Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz; Apple Chairman and CEO Steve Jobs; Genentech Chairman and former CEO Art Levinson; and venture capitalist Steve Westly.
