Big Tech tries to butter up Trump again
Not Zuckerburg or Musk
Some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley descended on the White House yesterday for the first meeting of the American Technology Council.
Apple's Tim Cook, Microsoft's Satya Nadella, Amazon's Jeff Bezos and Oracle co-CEO Safra Catz were among 18 tech executives and investors who met the Trump administration.
What is really more likely is that the they are brown-nosing their way to for lucrative US government contracts which are up for grabs as the government upgrades its computing systems.
However there is a week of working sessions and conversations about modernising the government's systems, cybersecurity, the H-1B visa programme, talent recruitment and other issues.
