Here Are The Tech Execs Meeting With President Obama Tuesday

Tech giants aren't on the best terms with the Obama administration lately, with the NSA's surveillance revelations getting more widespread by the day. But a lot of big tech names have agreed to visit the White House for a chat. The White House just announced a who's who of tech leaders are coming to Washington on Tuesday to meet with President Barack Obama and his team about the tech disaster that was, how government can better deliver IT and of course, national security.

According to the White House, here are the bigwigs expected to attend:

Tim Cook, CEO, Apple

Dick Costolo, CEO, Twitter

Chad Dickerson, CEO, Etsy

Reed Hastings, Co-Founder & CEO, Netflix

Drew Houston, Founder & CEO, Dropbox

Marissa Mayer, President and CEO, Yahoo!

Burke Norton, Chief Legal Officer, Salesforce

Mark Pincus, Founder, Chief Product Officer & Chairman, Zynga

Shervin Pishevar, Co-Founder & Co-CEO, Sherpa Global

Erika Rottenberg, Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary, LinkedIn

Sheryl Sandberg, COO, Facebook

Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman, Google

Brad Smith, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, Microsoft

Randall Stephenson, Chairman & CEO, AT&T

No word on whether these tech leaders will do as cabinet members do for the State of the Union and have one group member stay back in case calamity strikes the room while they're all in it.
