    Hi. I found your name as a link at the bottom of a Facebook page. I am the daughter of Bob Pahlka, formerly of Portland, Oregon, and then rerooted in Philadelphia. I have reconnected with some of my relatives in the Northwest but would always like to know more. My father had 2 brothers — Earl and Dave — and a sister Anna. Are we related somehow? Would love to know.

    And BTW, they always called my mother Grandmom Pahlka Dot.

  5. Hi Jennifer!

    I think what you’re doing with Code for America is awesome. The organization I work for, EMBARQ, plans to host an event during Digital Capital Week in D.C. on June 15, 2010 about “Online Engagement for Sustainable Urban Mobility,” with a specific focus on D.C.’s transport sector. I’d love to pick your brains about who to invite and what to discuss. How can I follow up with you “offline”?
