See? There lies the problem. I'm firmly in your "camp", and still I
learnt to realise that the other "cultures" do have as difficult a
time to adapt to "our" camp as the other way around.

That's why I believe that we need serious thinking (beyond the "easy"
technical things) and lots of tolerance.

To me, Wikipedia is a wonderful inspirational example for a web site
which succeds in bridging an astonishly broad swath of those "cultures"
(and still doesn't cover all of them, it has a distinct academic and
"liberal", in the broadest sense, "smell" to it).
