Jedi council

For obvious reasons, the idea of many people gathering in one place is, at the moment, not so attractive. This changes the relative benefits of meeting in the same place physically versus virtually.

While it is not clear at the moment just how things will get with this virus, one short term prognosis is already clear: Try to stay away from crowds.

To that end, we’ve been starting to think of our research in this area in terms of the Star Wars Jedi council: You want everyone to be in their own body, and to have the feeling of being in the same physical place.

But they don’t actually need to literally be in the same physical place. They might, or might not. The point is that, as much as possible, it shouldn’t matter.

To me that seems like a pretty cool stretch goal.
