Culture and Code

A very interesting article about Intel's research about how culture impacts technology - from the fact that homes in China are tightly packed, so wireless router ranges need to be shorter, to the man who assumed that postmaster was a real person and attempted to negotiate with them for delivery of his mail. I would love to read more - fortunately there's a book on this coming out sometime soon. So, keep an eye out for Genevieve Bell . . . .
