White House Launches Techie Recruitment Effort

The White House is looking for enlistees into the Service; The US Digital Service that is. There is a serious recruitment drive under way to get the best of the best in the IT/Tech industries to spend two years in the service of the country. There will be fighting, but it will be against inefficient systems and bureaucracy that is jamming up the government tech systems.
