Having just spent some highly rewarding time at the annual American Society of Hand Therapists meeting in Washington DC, I cannot help but reflect on the enduring value of face-to-face interaction. Even as technology increases the ease in which we can communicate with each other without face-to-face interaction, we come to appreciate the irreplaceable value of meeting and discussing ideas with fellow human beings in a face-to-face situation. This theme was clear in many aspects of the annual meeting, and in my own experiences as a researcher.
