President Obama to hold second meeting with Internet companies
President Obama is slated to meet with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and undisclosed tech company executives later today, according to the <a href="" rel='nofollow'>White House schedule</a>. On the agenda are further discussions with the executives about recent NSA revelations, and a continuation of the president's "dialogue with them on the issues of privacy, technology, and intelligence."<br />
<br />
Google, Facebook, Yahoo, and Apple CEOs were all invited to the meeting, but it is unclear who will attend other than Zuckerberg. Zuckerberg <a href=" installation/" rel='nofollow'>wrote last week</a> that he believed that the US should be the "champion for the Internet, not a threat." The executive believes that the US needs to "be much more transparent about what they're doing, or otherwise people will believe the worst."<br />
<br />
The meeting is scheduled for 4:05PM EST. No press are invited to the event, which will be held in the oval office.
