INTERVIEW
 This week, Jeremy speaks with Garrett Johnson, co-founder and executive director at Lincoln Network. Garrett shares how government and technology have operated in “separate silos” rather than embracing the exciting opportunities that sit at the intersection of these two spheres. From his experience in government, it is clear that “technologists and innovators play an important role in addressing our nation’s most pressing problems.” Garrett believes that when both of these worlds come together, individual liberty and economic opportunity increase for all Americans and strengthen civil society.  

PRACTICALITIES
You'll also hear from Devon Ironside, Director of Data Services at American Philanthropic, about the common mistakes organization make in their databases and how to fix them.
