US Digital Service TED Talk

Bottom Line Up Front: You should consider working for the US Digital Service because it has a huge impact on many of your fellow citizens.

As you remember from previous posts, the US Digital Service is the organization behind the US Web Design System. Matt Cutts, its current boss, gave a TED talk last year on his experience leaving Google and running the Government’s “SWAT team of nerds.”

His bottom line: it’s tremendously rewarding to help average citizens by bringing in Silicon Valley user-centered design and convenience to previously ponderous and difficult Government services and interactions. And you should join him.

It’s a short 5-minute talk; you should watch it.
