Buttercup of Doom

Buttercup of Doom is a weekly podcast hosted by Kelli Owen and brought to you by Project Entertianment Network. Everyone else is doing reviews and news and genre-based things, and Kelli’s never been very good at following the crowd. So each week Kelli will offer writing advice, share a smile, rant about society or social media, toss a bit of gypsy wisdom out there, and occasionally have guests. There will be highs. There will be lows. There will be swearing (you’ve been warned). There might be cookies.

This week I offer up a quick and dirty PSA on cyber space, crimes, hacking and such. From how to deal with tech in your writing, to what you need to fear, pay attention to, and keep in mind in reality. Because tech arrogance and consumer ignorance is a dangerous combination.
