Mediation is always better in person, and in fact, we’re starting to have a big movement about international mediators and having places where people can meet internationally when a party lives in a different country. But it’s totally possible with technology to not do it in person. I’ve had successful mediations that way. This is the wave of the future, and we’ve got great technology. I was Skyping with somebody last night who is in Bangkok, and it was morning in Bangkok. It’s really great. The technology we have is great. But if you can do it in person, that’s usually the best way.
