My hope is that people will have a 2 minute conversation with a goal
of ticking the boxes, and then get interested, and spend the rest of
the meal having a pleasant conversation that they actually care about
with people who they haven't interacted with in meatspace before.
There's always going to be some social awkwardness, but I think it'd
be there even if you were just trying to make conversation with people
you didn't know well without the goal of signing keys.
All bad precedents began as justifiable measures.
