The White House announcing a newly formed US Digital Service today as well as who will be at the helm.
The man they've chosen?
Mikey Dickerson, the former Google engineer widely credited with playing a big role in salvaging health-care-dot-gov after its rocky roll out.
The Obama administration has started to call the new service U-S-D-S and they aim to have it institutionalize the similar approach that saved the health care site to other government sites. The hope is it can help stop disastrous problems on those sites before they ever happen.
The team will be separate from the government's in-house web development team and focus more on the building and maintaining effective digital services for the government.
