[Air-l] intercultural communication

I have some data that I accumulated as I assisted an International
grad student seminar in 1996 (Do a Google on "dj50"). The seminar was
run from the University of Duisburg and Keio University in Tokyo with
English as the language of dialog. Part of the seminar used a
web-based annotation tool to comment publically on sections of the
text of position papers. The only interesting finding was that the
students in Japan did not make a single annotation while the students
in Germany made about 50. Clearly there was some culturally based
reluctance to criticize in public.
