Another CEO for Leica Camera AG.....
Yesterday I was reminded by iTunes that I'd pre-ordered The Social Network, the film of Ben Mezrich's book of the same name–which I enjoyed reading last year (on my iPhone, of course).

Now, I see, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is one of a trinity of silicone saints invited to attend a meeting with President Obama when he visits San Francisco later today. This holy trinity of the tech world includes Google's Eric Schmidt and our own Steve Jobs in addition to Zuckerberg. It's a social network I don't think even Mark could have imagined eight years ago when he founded the world-beating site.
