As a matter of fact, Ballmer is indeed missing

Perhaps the White House recalled when MS and HP lost a whole bunch of their emails...

Who's the IBM representative in there...?

Pedro Quaresma, 2011-02-18

IBM? They were not even considered for a joke. Don't think the POTUS asks Gartner for what they consider leaders.

@Vowe - no need. Sam Palmisano and Obama had their one-on-one time last year.

Where is Steve?

Marc Egart, 2011-02-19

Ballmer? No idea. Jobs? To Obama's left.

The photo has a certain da Vinci's 'Last Supper' feel to it. Steve Jobs as Judas?

Is it me, or does the table seem slightly crowded? And man, Obama's looking older. It's remarkable how every US president seems to age 10 years during their first two years in office. Talk about stress.

I see Larry back there, who are the others. Cant seem to find a full list anywhere.

Interesting, Zuckerberg on the right of the President. Only other person I recognise (apart from Jobs who someone pointed out already) is Eric Schmidt on the far left of the picture.

Re IBM, this was a SILICON VALLEY CEO gathering, and our CEO is, as pointed out, on the east coast. Also explains no Ballmer, as fun as that thought might have been.
