peace corps for geeks...

If you read this blog regularly you already know that I am fascinated with the work being done at TED.com. I came across this recent video at their site and could not resist sharing.

Jennifer Pahlka speaking about a project she calls "coding a better government" and self describes it as the Peace Corps for Geeks. The convince rising tech stars to take a year off and work for city governments to develop technology solutions in a short period of time that, thru normal governmental channels, would have taken years to develop and implement. For me, it is a fantastic, real world example, of what we mean with our tag line at Envision... TECH [ nology ] APPLIED. Take a look and see if you don't agree with me, that as if most often the case with TED videos.. genious is at work here ;-)
