from The Wall Street Journal.

The most recent version of Firefox makes it much easier for Web surfers to

Let’s discuss the meaning of the word “culture.” Read page 10 and 11 of textbook and make notes for a discussion.

1. What cultural events did you enjoy over the weekend?

2. Is there a cutlural affect that comes from reading books and newspapers that is different from watching TV? playing video games? YouTube?

3. Do you read articles on the WWW?
