''' *SELFIE* & SHINES* : OBAMA '''

*GAME AFOOT* : THE GREAT  students of America, need to ensure that President Obama is to know about my request for an appointment.

With America's flag fluttering right at the top of Readers Column on........... *Sam Daily Times :  The Voice of the Voiceless* : the Master Publication of !WOW!  -the World Students Society:

All honours go to the Students of America, with a historic responsibility and with time enough, to plan, execute and oversee Global Elections on the World Students Society's :   Ecosystem 2011.   

*PRESIDENT OBAMA  guest-edited  an issue of  Wired magazine, challenging  Silicon Valley to tackle inequality and civic participation.

And, with the University of  Pittsburgh and Carnegie  Mellon University, he hosted the White House Frontiers Conference in Pittsburgh*.

''I would be surprised if he did not spend a significant amount of his post-presidency time and effort connecting the resources and ideas and capabilities that he has learned about in Silicon Valley-

With the kinds of causes that he will choose,'' said Reid Hoffman, executive chairman and co-founder of LinkedIn and a top political donor to Mr. Obama.

At the time, White House aides declined to comment on the president's plans for Jan.21 and beyond.

But Paul Larson, who was one of Mr. Obama's advisers at the office of Science and Technology Policy, called him ''a true geek president''.

Mr. Larson, who is now at SpaceX, the rocket company founded by the billionaire Elon Musk, said Mr. Obama  ''loves sitting back and having scientists say magical things about the future.'' 

Mr. Obama  is the first sitting president to post a selfie on Instagram, and he proudly gave the  Vulcan salute when he met Leonard Nimoy, the actor who played  Spock  in  ''Star Trek.''

Mr. Obama created the position of  United States *chief Technology officer* on his first day in office, and he has championed initiatives on issues like funding for start-ups, visas for international entrepreneurs and self driving cars.

A number of  Silicon Valley executives have joined the Obama administration, including Megan J. Smith, a former Google executive who is now the United States chief technology officer, and-

Kurt Delbene, who left Microsoft in 2013 to manage Healthcare.gov and later returned to the tech company.

But Mr. Obama has also angered  civil liberties advocates who grew to view him as the  ''surveillance president,''  to willing to continue government programs, put in place after the terrorist attacks of 2001,  that use technology to snoop on Americans.

A recent report from the Centre on  Privacy &  Technology  at Georgetown University law school chided the  F.B.I  and the police for assembling a face-recognition  database system-

That contains more than  117 million  adults,  half of all adults in the country.

''This president has presided over an era in which universal tracking is becoming more pervasive,  not just from intelligence agencies  but also at the level of local law enforcement,'' said Ben Wizner-

The Director of the  Speech, Privacy and Technology project at the American Civil Liberties Union and the chief legal adviser to  Edward J, Snowden, a former government contractor who revealed in 2013-

That United States intelligence agencies had created a surveillance system to comb through  Americans' phone records and overseas Internet traffic.

The public controversy that followed the disclosures emboldened some technology executives to stand up to government intrusion, leading to  disagreements about how to ensure data security and privacy while meeting the needs of law enforcement,

Last year, Apple refused to comply with an F.B.I demand that the company unlock an  iPhone  during a terrorism investigation.

Still, that has not stopped Silicon Valley from keeping an open door for Mr. Obama.  

Sam Altman, the president of Y Combinator, a Silicon Valley start-up accelerator, suggested that the soon-to-be  ex-president would be a good job candidate.

''We'd happily hire him,'' Mr. Altman joked,  ''and give him a chance.''

Yes, President Obama who totally supported and promoted research, may be all set for a  great technology role: I leave the rest to the World Students' imagination. 

With respectful dedication to the Leaders, Grandparents, Parents, Students, Professors and Teachers of the world. See Ya all on !WOW!  -the World Students Society and Twitter-!E-WOW!  -the Ecosystem 2011:
