What?! Episode 50 of the Killing IT Podcast! We're almost at the one year mark. And we really appreciate your listenership.

Topic 1: Coronavirus / Covid-19 and Traveling Today

All of us travel a lot. Some notes from Karl’s travels to Thailand and Cambodia, etc.

We also discuss several industry cancellations and the longer-term implications of this on the broader economy. Since this recording (a couple days a go), CompTIA's CCF, Channel Partners, and South by Southwest have all canceled.

Other comments on caution vs. panic, supply chain, Christmas sales, and more.
