President Obama, don’t listen to anything the guy from Zynga has to say!

 

The President is holding a powwow with fifteen leading figures in the tech industry, and somehow the head of Zynga got on the list. This sounds terrible because it is. The purpose for the roundtable is for the White House to get opinions on how to correct HealthCare.gov and deal with the NSA. So, it’s smart to ask the advice of people like Tim Cook of Apple and Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook. 

But the CPO of a company that carved out the manipulative social game market and hooked millions of listless clickers on raising virtual ears of corn? Unless Obama is planning to implement Farmville’s friend referral system for government-sponsored healthcare, or lure international terrorists with a banally cute contraband-trading clickathon, this can do no good.
