@francis Nice article! I can't speak for everyone, but personally I work from home and don't interact physically with people so often, so coming to a conference where it's all-interaction-all-the-time can be quite overwhelming. Looking at my phone for a few minutes between talks lets me get a valuable bit of headspace, decompress and give my brain time to process things (especially as the schedule is so full) I still got to chat to lots of amazing people so I don't feel like I missed out!
