I am trying to give my self a data set of anthropological observations that exist outside my day job. But I also use this content and work to contribute to and add value to the work I do here: www.northstarhub.com
I also think some of this stuff could be interesting to others.
I think we are all observers of our world to some degree or another. We all have an inner anthropologist looking around and learning and reacting to the curious bits of human culture.
So, I have tasked myself with trying to answer the questions of what “makes” American Culture. Typically speaking, the things that ultimately define or create culture start out on the fringes, or in the “weirdo” space. So I observe a lot of that. But then there is the stuff that can get lost in the mundanity of our day to day that is also particularly fascinating if you REALLY take a hard look at it. It will try to bring that to the fore as well.
And I encourage commentary from my readers (if there are any out there), because human observations only have meaning if assigned it by other humans. I am deeply interested in the meaning others find out there. So, please share.
