“That’s ultimately what every American wants out of their government, is to get sh-t done; to solve problems, to put forward solutions and to figure out areas of politics of compromise.”
The National Journal continues with more background information on the group:
LincolnLabs was launched in 2013 by three young former Republican operatives. One of the group’s founders, Garrett Johnson, worked for Jeb Bush, who is now dealing with his own tech-related quandary. While the group is bipartisan (Democratic Rep. Jared Polis joins several Republicans in speaking at the conference), its work is an exemplar of the modern Republican Party, which is becoming more tech-focused, as exhibited by its love for ride-sharing services like Uber.
…And, much like many Silicon Valley peers, LincolnLabs’ solution is devastatingly earnest. The Reboot conference will include “‘Office Hours,’ in which developers, designers, and other technology experts will be matched with congressional staffers, think tank digital strategists, and campaign operatives to whiteboard solutions in person, and encourage communication between Washington, D.C. and technology hubs around the nation,” according to the group’s website.
