Big Shoulders: Daniel Goff, Former State of Illinois DCEO

 |   Adam J. Hecktman

Just about everyone I have met in the civic tech space has considered public service at one point or another. And that makes sense: civic tech is partially about government and citizens working as partners to take on challenges. In this episode of Big Shoulders, I talk to Daniel Goff who has just completed service in the State of Illinois’ Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.  He speaks to the experience and how technology is viewed from inside the state government. I hope you enjoy his interesting perspective as much as I did.
