Science blinded by culture

I'm fascinated by the work of cultural anthropologist Genevieve Bell. I spoke with her back in '98 or '99, when she first came to Intel and I contributed occasional articles to the Detroit News science section. No story came out of our interview at the time, but I remember how our conversation helped open my eyes to an element of technology and innovation that too many people in the science world neglect or negate: the role of culture.
