No, I will definitely concede that face-to-face interaction is an incredible thing, and I much prefer it to anything else. My problem is that what I'm working on is fairly narrow, and there isn't really anyone around my workplace doing the same thing. There are some other folks working on the same thing, but they're scattered all around the world. We meet up every couple of months for face-to-face researchin', and I feel pretty terrible about it, because airplane carbon emissions. I've said it before, but I think it's very important that we at least start trying to adopt VR teleconferencing. Ugh, that little bit of latency has already burned me, though.
