thread I know that feeling
a problem we're having is that there are all these firms out there in our space, where everyone is working from home, and can't do much of their normal job, so are catching up on stuff they don't normally have time to do

for us academics, this means that all the vain attempts we've been making for years to get the time and attention of industry and government people are suddenly all being replied to at once and now it's just endless scoping meetings for work we'll never have time to do because we'd normally be lucky to get a 5% response rate

it's a good problem to have, but I'm finding it hard work pretending to have my shit together right now. Just finished a 2 hour webex (ew) with government folks and the beer has been immediately poured
