So How Can You Help Phoebe the Cyber Crime Dog Continue to Help Others? I’m Glad You Asked!

Meet Phoebe.  Phoebe is one of the first friends I had on Facebook.

So, Did They Listen?

I guess you’re wondering if I’ve heard anything from any of the players involved in the “meeting” I attended Wednesday night. I have.
