Sylvester Cann is a 30-year-old Seattle native, a legislative aide for State Representative Scott White and a self-described "big technology guy." He's also the first person we've ever seen get a sitting president to finger-doodle on his iPad, and you aren't. So nanny-nanny. Boo-boo.
Cann, who graduated from the University of Washington in 2004, says he brought his iPad to yesterday's rally at Hec Pavilion because he thought there'd be wi-fi. When he realized there wasn't, Cann decided there was an upside to taking his new Apple toy into the building.
Above, you can see a photo of Cann right before the signature (credit: AP). You can spot him because he's the only person in the frame holding an iPad with the words, "Mr. President, sign my iPad" written on it using the Adobes Ideas app. He's also the only one not completely losing his shit.
Said Cann in an e-mail exchange with The Daily Weekly: "Secret service was a bit leery of the idea, but they got over it and the President thought it was cool."
Below is video of Cann getting the signature. Warning: even if you like Obama, this video might make you hate him. Not him so much, but the reaction he elicits from an audience of college students. Jesus, people. Calm down. He's the leader of the free world, not John Mayer.
