Tech Leaders + White House Correspondents’ Weekend

The New York Times’ media mogul and columnist, David Carr, chronicled the arrival of tech leaders at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, quoting one of today’s greatest film producer/directors, Judd Apatow, who likened meeting Google’s Eric was like meeting the man who invented fire.

Garden Brunch guests were gawking at the All-Star Tech lineup including Hosain Rahman, CEO of Jawbone (and a CURE Epilepsy supporter who donated Jamboxes that were given away to top donors), Dick Costolo, Twitter CEO, Brad Keywell, co-founder of Groupon, Chamath Palihapitiya and Brigette Lau, of Social+Capital Partnership, Mark Pincus, CEO of Zynga and his wife Ali, co-founder of One Kings Lane, Dennis Crowley, co-founder of Foursquare and Arianna Huffington of the Huffington Post.

Brunch co-host Hilary Rosen said it best before an award was presented to Steve and Jean Case of the Case Foundation, which is a partner in Startup America, that “this audience is filled with people who are on the cutting edge of innovation, policy, philanthropy and charity.”
