#379: John Wilker (part 2)


Today we continue our conversation with John Wilker, organizer of 360iDev. Today we focus on the business of running a conference in the midst of a global pandemic, discussing the negotiations involved in canceling a venue, and the economics of running an online conference. Then we talk about John’s other business as an author of a series of science fiction novels.
