Jennifer Pahlka, the charasmatic founder of Code for America, perhaps best known for her inspiring TED talk "Coding a Better Government," announced on her blog Thursday she will soon become a fed. She'll join the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy as deputy chief technology officer for government innovation under U.S. CTO Todd Park, a man she says has been an inspiration. 

"I want to gain a deeper understanding of what it’s like to work in government, with all of its challenges and opportunities," Pahlka said, noting her stint would be for one year.
