Topic: "There are so many competing sources of information and distraction now that the idea of a “common culture” is nonsense.". In the meetup we will first work together to figure out 10 questions whose answers can throw some light on this topic. Then we will discuss (and probably disagree about!) what it all might mean. The aim is to foster your talent for asking interesting questions, then have a pleasant discussion based on them.
1. All past topic questions are now listed at http://thormay.net/unwiseideas/DiscussionTopics/DiscussionIndex.htm
2. Twenty-three sets of 10x questions (from Thor) designed for students of English as a Second Language are online at http://thormay.net/lxesl/Discussion%20Topics/Adelaide%20ESL%20Meetup.htm
