In case you haven’t seen it, here’s the official White House picture of President Obama’s dinner with Silicon Valley’s most prominent tech leaders in Woodside, Calif., last night.

Steve Jobs was on Obama’s left, Mark Zuckerberg was on his right and Larry Ellison was facing him across the table. Apparently it wasn’t a necktie sort of event.

Microsoft wasn’t represented, unless you count board member Reed Hastings, chief executive of Netflix, and partner Carol Bartz, chief executive of Yahoo.

Can you pick out the billionaires?

Other guests were Cisco’s John Chambers, Twitter’s Dick Costolo, Google’s Eric Schmidt, Genentech’s Art Levinson, Kleiner Perkins’ John Doerr, Stanford President John Hennessy and Steve Westly of Westly Group. It took place at Doerr’s house, according to the Mercury News.
