Has Central Air Conditioning Killed Community Cohesion?

Obviously this weekend was a bit extreme but I think my theory my have some truth to it. One of things that I immediately loved upon moving to Petworth was the fact that many hang out on their porches after work and folks travel from porch to porch having serious conversations. You know more than just a “hey how you doing?”. Folks are actually spending time hanging out together because they like each other but also because it can be damn hot in the house without AC. So I’m wondering with all the new renovations coming with central ac do you think that has an effect on the overall community feel of a neighborhood?
