Once again, here’s the weekly list of events for events for Tampa Bay techies, entrepreneurs, and nerds. Every week, on GlobalNerdy.com and on the mailing list, I scour the announcements for events that are interesting to or useful for those of you who are building the future here in “The Other Bay Area, on The Other West Coast”.
This list covers events from Monday, November 30 through Sunday, December 6, 2020. Yup, we’ll be in December by the end of the week!
Events — especially virtual, online ones — can pop up at the last minute. I add them to the list as I find out about them. Come back and check this article from time to time, as you might find a new listing that wasn’t there before!
Why this list doesn’t feature any in-person events
It’s because I’m trying to promote responsible behavior in the face of news stories like the ones below:
- CNN — US is ’rounding the corner into a calamity,’ expert says, with Covid-19 deaths projected to double soon
- New York Times — U.S. coronavirus cases pass 4 million for the month of November, doubling the record set in October and Daily Covid-19 deaths in the U.S. rise back toward the record level set in April
- WTSP Tampa Bay — Tampa Bay nears 1,000 hospitalizations as COVID-19 pandemic persists: As of Saturday afternoon, 995 people in the Bay area were hospitalized with COVID-19 as their primary diagnosis.
- ClickOrlando.com — Florida reports more than 6,000 new cases of coronavirus 2 days after Thanksgiving: State testing sties in Central Florida reopened this past Friday after being closed for holiday.
- FOX 13 Tampa Bay — 6,276 new Florida coronavirus cases reported Saturday; 79 new deaths
With a good number of people still having Thanksgiving-as-usual, we may see a spike just like the one Canada had (Canadian Thanksgiving is in October). You may want to take some extra precautions over the next couple of weeks.
