Why would the great destroyer of America be involved in something which is described as beneficial to the improvement of how government operates...or is there something here that should concern us all...I can't tell

If I owned a company the size of the Federal government, I would probably be doing the same thing. I am not going to lose sleep over this.

Yes it should concern all the givers not the takers

You betch’a - the more the gov knows about you the worse - now digitize all that paper, put everything in a data base, correlate, analyze and .. . Voila ... there you are in all your naked glory - everything is related nothing you have do, say is omitted.
You - for all intents and purposes - have ceased to be a living breathing being and are now a collection of digitized ones and zeros - an open record for all to read and do what they will.

The answer is a group of people who use annoying analytic scripts in webpages while feeding processing and database chores to the cloud (Amazon and Google).
0bama and his friends at Google and Amazon will know when you last sneezed and how you voted and then apply conditioning techniques to change your mind and attitude by changing what you experience across the entire Internet.

...remake the digital systems by which government operates, to implement the kind of efficiency and agility and effectiveness that define Silicon Valleys biggest successes...
What a fool's errand that is. Nobody in government is interested in efficiency, low-cost of operations, good customer service, good support, agility, speed or innovation. Those are anathema to the people who work in government. They want cushy rote jobs that require no thinking or talent..and pay you for 40 hours even though the "work" may take only 15 hours. Government unions will assure nothing changes.
These people taking these jobs should get frustrated within a few months after realizing it's impossible to push on the end of a wet rope.

(The Second Amendment, a Matter of Fact, Not A Matter of Opinion)
Anything that comes with an obamian stamp of approval can be expected to be used against the citizens of the United States of America.
I've spent much of the last 25 years fixing crap code in DoD systems. They of lots of complex code with aging infrastructure. The business logic is wrapped tightly into the code, so extracting it and "modernizing" it is a nightmare. Anybody who buys the BS that Obama is going to insert a dream team of computer science genius to "fix" inefficient government code is smoking some good weed. Turn the "genius" corps loose on "healthcare.gov" if they are so damn good. Fix that steaming pile of poop before claiming a panacea for other systems.

U.S. Digital Services and 18F are where Startup talent from SF runs to when their SF/SV venture dies.
Both of those new services have been pushing Open Source code into every government agency...which quickly gets hacked as soon as the code goes in.
None of their sharable modules of code are secure. They are slicing up what little government security existed.
18F is particularly vocal on Twitter. All Open Source, all of the time.
Hackers’ wet dream.
