Service through technology (We’re going to the White House)

SMORG-MM36-Flag-logo

We’re in a time of crappiness in politics — endless roadblocks, complaining, and negativity.

But there’s a bright spot in Washington: The amazing work of the US Digital Service. They are teaching government agencies how to build better software.

This matters, because each improvement makes life easier for millions of citizens. Faster care for veterans, quicker benefits for seniors, and fewer hassles for all of us.

Good government is independent of politics, and we all win when the government gets better at doing good work.

Read about their inspiring work here and here.

We’re bringing 100 SocialMedia.org members to the White House on Tuesday as guests of U.S. Chief Technology Officer Megan Smith. The reason: the first ever White House Demo Day, which will bring together entrepreneurs from all walks of life, from all across the country, highlighting the individual journeys of a diverse set of entrepreneurs — people whose stories show exactly why we need to grow the pie to make sure there’s opportunity for everyone in our innovation economy.

Follow along on Twitter via hashtag #WHDemoDay.

The event will also be livestreamed at www.whitehouse.gov/live.
