The Internet’s coolest kids hung out together for the most impressive picture we’ve seen in recent times.
That’s what this photo from the Internet Industry Forum at Microsoft’s main campus in Redmond, Washington feels like. Maybe less cool and more iconic, though.
The picture puts together the World Wide Web’s most powerful names – the top CEOs and founders – Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Alibaba’s Jack Ma, Microsoft’s Satya Nadella, Apple’s Tim Cook, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and 24 other tech biggies – posed with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
The tech titans had gathered to participate in the event sponsored by China and Microsoft, and everyone seemed excited to meet President Xi Jinping. None as much as Mark Zuckerberg, however. The Facebook CEO and co-founder spoke to the president in Chinese, and even managed to get a laugh out of him.
In case you’re wondering, here’s a complete list of all the tech giants captured in the photograph above:
