And in general, you can frame the breadth of diversity as a time saver because frankly, it takes time to talk to that many people. And if you have technology that lets you reach an order of magnitude more people at the same cost, then the career public service is all for it. I think we chose Stanford delegation this time because ADI found out, oh, you can just spend a couple thousand US dollars and then you save all the time of having to organize a face-to-face meeting and inviting people to travel and reimbursing them for high-speed rails and missing people and things, and you don’t have to worry about that anymore. And so, you can reach a lot more people just by sending SMS. What a time saver. And really, that expense is negligible if you compare it to high-speed rail tickets.
