I would like to introduce the newest blogger and member of the H&K DC Tech Team, Lindsay Campbell, who has joined us from Rochester, N.Y., for our summer internship. She has kindly authored the post below and will be contributing to the blog on a regular basis.

OMG… Social Tech Comes to State Department with New Innovation Adviser Mon, 06 Apr 2009 22:00:54 +0000 Sharla Lane Although we may not be expecting IRS letters to be sent via text message any time soon, the State Department acknowledged the importance of social networking with a new hire today.


Alec Ross, co-founder of One Economy, a nonprofit bringing technology to underprivileged communities, today assumes his role as senior adviser on innovation to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Formerly serving under top technology adviser Julius Genachowski on the Obama Campaign, Ross is hopeful that tools such as Facebook, text messaging and YouTube can serve a critical role in promoting human rights and vibrant democracies, fostering development and enhancing the impact of smart power.


Currently residing in Baltimore, Md., and with a resume arguably unique to Washington, Ross is expected to bring an innovative approach to the use of technology in advancing the White House agenda.
