I agree entirely and am having the same problem with our group. Many were
apparently only participating in email because they thought it would end
when we moved in. Instead it increased by 50% since there were many more
jobs to be done, information to share, and arrangements to be made. Some
feel that it is interfering with face to face interactions. Of course no one
wants more meetings either so we are between a rock and a hard place.

I would like to do more business on email since it is available to everyone
24/7 even when they are in Katmandu or in isolation with the flu, and save
the face to face for social stuff -- sing alongs, dinners, show and tell,
cook-outs, etc.
