President Obama knows there's no shortage of techies in the  Bay Area and he's tapping them for his reelection campaign.

According to SF Gate, the Obama campaign has, for the first time, opened a new kind of campaign office in San Francisco: A Technology Field Office. That means no answering phones or going door to door looking for donations.

Instead, volunteers will use their tech skills, such as website development. It is believed to be the first such type of campaign office for a presidential campaign.

If it works in San Francisco, the Obama campaign is ready to launch similar tech posts across the country. If you want to get involved, contact techvolunteers@barackobama.com.
