Come to DC for a stint! We need you! See below:



TechCongress, in partnership with The Open Technology Institute
<https://www.newamerica.org/oti/oti-announces-the-launch-of-techcongress-2/>
at New America, is looking for three great tech-oriented thinkers for our
first class of Congressional Innovation Fellows.


Please forward to any other lists that might be interested, or nominate
someone you think would be a good candidate here:
www.techcongress.io/nominate.

The TechCongress Congressional Innovation Fellowship is a new nonpartisan
program that will place tech-oriented thinkers in Congress in order to
inject greater technical knowledge into the policymaking process and help
Congress keep up with advances in technology.  Starting in January 2016,
fellows will spend nine months in Washington, D.C. working directly for a
Congressional office focused on forward-thinking tech policymaking to
achieve maximum impact.  Here

are <http://bit.ly/1VsRlQB> a couple <http://bit.ly/1Q5W21b> recent
profiles of the fellowship for further background.

The project is made possible by in part by a philanthropic seed investment
from entrepreneur and investor Reid Hoffman.  The deadline for applications
is November 1. For more information, or to apply, visit
