Gore's comments came during a busy tour of Silicon
for himself, Chernomyrdin, and their accompanying
entourage. The group landed at Moffett Field, visited
Lockheed Martin Missiles and Space facility in
then ventured to the meeting at San Jose State.

Gore then whisked Chernomyrdin to the headquarters of
Cisco Systems for a private session with Silicon
execs chosen by TechNet, the lobbying brainchild of
venture capitalist John Doerr and Cisco (CSCO) CEO
John Chambers.

Tech heavyweights in attendance
Also scheduled to attend the session were investment
banker Sandy Robertson; Chuck Geschke, chairman of
Adobe Systems (ADBE); Lew Platt, chief executive of
Hewlett-Packard (HWP); Eric Schmidt, chief executive
Novell Inc. (NOVL); and Joe Kraus, co-founder of

Cisco was chosen as the meeting place because while
Russians "have a zest for all things that relate to
technology," they need help with infrastructure, said
Garrett, spokesman for TechNet. "Cisco creates the
infrastructure for the Internet."

Gore, a frequent visitor to California in the past
month, was
to wind up the day at a $1,000-a-plate dinner in Los
Altos, Calif., for Sen. Barbara Boxer.
