When Hillary Hartley was a kid, her insurance-agent father bought a Commodore 64--her entry point into technology and her launchpad to her work today as deputy executive director and design lead of 18F, an innovative office within the General Services Administration. Hartley has spent the past 15 years using design and technology to make government services more efficient, from designing Arkansas's state website to creating a polling-place lookup tool to advising state governments on adoption of citizen-friendly communication technology. Hartley, a 2013 presidential innovation fellow, also organized a "geek retreat" called Yes by Yes Yes (YxYY), which gathered 400 nerds for what she called an "experiment in planned serendipity."
