I am trying to give my self a data set of anthropological observations that inspire and inform the work I do as a cultural strategist. The world is full of humans who’s surface level behavior represents a much deeper connected set of values and cultural norms.
I also generally think humans are fascinating creatures and that some of this stuff will 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 questions around why and how culture is dispersed. There are all kinds of wacky things we do as humans and fringe culture that creates mainstream culture. When I see stuff like that I like to write about it. 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 the blogging community, 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.
