What Are President Obama, Zuck, Jobs And Other Silicon Valley Tech Stars Toasting To?

The White House has just posted several photos from President Obama’s dinner with a number of Silicon Valley’s technology CEOs and leaders yesterday evening. As you can see from the photos, the star studded invitee list included Facebook CEO Marc Zuckerberg, Apple CEO Steve Jobs, Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz, Cisco’s CEO John Chambers, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, Genentech Chairman Art Levinson; Google CEO Eric Schmidt; former state controller and venture capitalist Steve Westly Doerr, and Stanford University President John Hennessy. The event was held at Kleiner Perkins partner John Doerr’s home.

The “cheers” photo above is a little cheesy, but as you can see, both Steve Jobs and Marc Zuckerberg got the prime seats at the table, both seated next to President Obama. And the candid of picture of the President engaged in conversation with Zuckerberg is also a priceless shot. It’s interesting that the White House chose to release that particular photo to the public.

Any guesses as to what Obama, Zuck, Bartz, Jobs and the rest are toasting to?
