Apple CEO Steve Jobs lunched with UK prime minister Tony Blair on Sunday, when Blair visited Silicon Valley.

Blair also took a tour of Cisco's global headquarters during his visit.

The prime minister said: "I'm here today in listening mode, as long as you treat me as ignorant." He was interested in how the Silicon Valley culture fosters entrepreneurism.

"We're trying in our way in Britain to make sure the UK is a dynamic, innovative country," Blair told his lunchtime gathering of technology leaders, who also included representatives from AMD, Adobe and Sun.

The technologists recommended Blair and other politicians keep a blog.
