President Obama’s LinkedIn Town Hall

On September 26th, President Barack Obama will return to Silicon Valley. The visit is part of a three-day West Coast tour. The President will also stop in Los Angeles, San Diego and Seattle. The President will travel to Mountain View, California, on Monday for a LinkedIn Town Hall – and you’re invited to participate through LinkedIn.


The 44th and current president of the United States. 

You can ask President Obama questions, comment on the discussion, share your own content, and watch the event live. White House Administration officials will continue to engage in the conversation after the event with LinkedIn members.

Linked Into Change 
President Obama will answer questions about the economy from LinkedIn members across the country and hear directly from LinkedIn’s variety of users – from small business owners to community college students and veterans. The White House web site has more information.

This isn’t the first time Obama has fielded questions on LinkedIn. The president used LinkedIn during his 2008 presidential campaign. President Obama was the first presidential candidate to learn how to use social media as a means of reaching voters.

Stanford Summer Camp for kids 6-18

Stanford University’s innovation fuels creativity at Summer Camp !

Spring has sprung here in Silicon Valley, and before you know it, the school year will come to a close. We’re thrilled about Digital Media Academy’s summer camp lineup at Stanford and hope your 6-18 year old will join us for a week or two … or more!

Digital Media Academy offers both residential sleepaway and day summer camp options on Stanford’s picturesque campus, just minutes from downtown Palo Alto, in the heart of innovative, dynamic Silicon Valley. Whether you’re local, hosting grandchildren, or bringing the family out for a visit, Stanford University is the ideal location for US summer camps to explore filmmaking, game design, web design, photography and all the creative digital arts.

While the kids are soaking in the Stanford University summer camp experience, and learning to create visual effects for future careers with Avatar 6 or World of Warcraft, you’ll have prime access to all the Bay Area has to offer – San Francisco Giants or Oakland A’s baseball, Wine Tours in Napa Valley and the Santa Cruz Mountains, and beaches in Santa Cruz, Half Moon Bay, and Marin County.

As we’re an Apple Authorized Training Center, you can explore Digital Media Academy’s adult classes at Stanford University, regardless of whether you’re a seasoned pro or avid hobbyist.

One of our Stanford University summer camp instructors, Melanie Levy, is a professional documentary filmmaker and video producer. She recently reflected on the broad diversity of previous Digital Media Academy students, and she’s excited to guide this summer’s aspiring filmmakers through the documentary process.
