(CNN) – Sylvester Cann didn't think it would work. But he figured it was worth a try.
And, lo and behold, where others seeking President Barack Obama's signature with a pen and paper had failed, Cann &.65279;obtained the commander in chief's autograph on his iPad, in what's believed to be the first instance of the president signing an iPad for an autograph-seeker.
Pretty awesome. President Obama really represents our generation, and moving forward – not moving back.
