The Bay Area tech community, like much of the rest of the country, is still grappling with what Trump’s election will mean for the future of the United States. Jen Pahlka and Tim O’Reilly led this difficult and important conversation during our January What’s Now: San Francisco event. The founder and Executive Director of Code for America, Jen served as U.S. Deputy Chief Technology Officer from June 2013 to June 2014 and co-founded the USDS. Tim O’Reilly was a pioneer in the Gov. 2.0 movement in the decade leading into the Obama years. Jen and Tim discussed the role that technologists passionate about civil service can play in the next four years.
