A high-tech delegation representing eBay, Cisco, Mozilla, Twitter and others is heading to Russia (Moscow and Novosibirsk).
The nine executives flying to Moscow on Tuesday — weather permitting — include Mitchell Baker, chair of the Mozilla Foundation; John Donahoe, president and CEO of eBay; Jack Dorsey, founder of Twitter; Esther Dyson, currently of EDventure; Jason Liebman, CEO and co-founder of Howcast; Shervin Pishevar, founder of Social Gaming Network; Ellis Rubinstein, president and CEO of the New York Academy of Sciences; and Padmasree Warrior, CTO of Cisco Systems.
Joining the CEOs, Cohen, and Howard Solomon of the National Security Council is Kutcher, whose Demi and Ashton Foundation targets “anti-trafficking issues and in particular the potential role that technology can play.”
Delegation will arrive to Novosibirsk 19 February 2010 to stay here for a three days. Public meeting will be held in Akademgorodok (23, Morskoy ave.) this saturday at 2.30pm.
