US president-elect Donald Trump held a meeting today with various Silicon Valley luminaries.
The invite list for such a meeting, however, only tells us so much. Like at a good wedding, the seating chart is key—each decision should be made with utmost caution and intention. Here is where everybody sat at Trump’s tech meeeting.
