Culture is a relative term that is used to describe the things we do because of learned behavior. Culture is what groups of people in different locations develop to survive. What is culture for one person may not be culture for another person. “Culture is everything. Culture is the way we dress, the way we carry our heads, the way we walk, the way we tie our ties — it is not only the fact of writing books or building houses.” Aime Cesair, Martiniquen writer, speaking to the World Congress of Black Writers and Artists in Paris [source: Petras and Petras]
Let‘s talk about what I know as culture.
I come from a technology driven culture. Born in San Francisco, I have lived there for half of my life, where the geeks walk the streets with laptops smaller than a keyboard, they multitask while they commute with their Bluetooth headsets in ear, their mobile devices clipped to their belts, their Internet connection is always on, they have live web cams, and finally their tech driven conversations are easily overheard at any coffee shop. Where I am from, the average person lives Internet culture.
