My Phone Call to You: Why we need to Advocate for Digital Citizenship, Safety and Success

I just set up a gcast podcast channel. I don't have time to record and edit podcasts, but gcast lets me make phone calls to you and that is what I did last night.

I wanted to give you insight into why we need Advocates for Digital Citizenship, Safety, and Success and a little background on some of the people involved in the initial conversations as well as my ideas for what may need to happen.

I hope you'll listen.
