No we’re doing pretty well as far as I can tell. CoVid times has everyone exceptionally busy so you might catch folks when they are frazzled and that might hurt the interaction - but it’s not because people are getting systemically worse. I spend hours every week during recruiting season talking to folks from my alma mater and it’s a lot - I’m sure at times I don’t come across as the most engaged but I do try and help everyone I speak to, as I’m sure my colleagues do.
