I currently work on a Q&A site; I couldn’t resist picking this up when I saw it.

Transcript of Obama’s tech meeting in Silicon Valley

Brilliant play-by-play (in the form of a comment on TechCrunch) by Fred Zanford:

Mark Zuckerberg: Seriously, you guys are wasting my time. I’m sitting here listening to you, while back at the Facebook offices, my colleagues are inventing things that no one in this room will ever be capable of. Look, Barack, if you want to cut the deficit, run all the government’s IT through Facebook. All your employees are spending a couple of hours per day at work using Facebook already, why not transfer all the government functions into Facebook apps, so that that government workers can be more efficient doing whatever it is they do, instead of having to hit the “boss” button to hide Facebook every time they hear footsteps. And if you don’t like my idea, %*@! It. Look, Tunisia and Egypt were just beta for us at Facebook. We can overthrow your government in a few days. All I have to do is push a button and I’ve got 5 million people protesting on the Mall by Saturday.

Obama: Right, got it. All government functions on Facebook. But only if you can get Russia to do the same.

Zuckerberg. Don’t be silly. I Skyped with Putin this morning. It’s a done deal.

Dick Costolo: @Woodside mansion. Pasta delicious!
