    Cyber bullying is no laughing matter, and the ramifications of it can last well past a person's high school years. In 2010 alone, 34 teens committed suicide as the result of cyber bullying that took place on personal websites, social networks, and various other forums across the web.

    In this video, we discuss this important issue with Christopher Burgess (@burgessct), who will be speaking at Gnomedex this year on November 2, 2011.
