By far the hardest problems are cultural. In a sense, I don't think they will be overcome - there will merely be affordances (I think that is the trendy word at the moment). By this I mean that in time (when global courses become more commonplace) we will all come to see the cultural issues differently.

In this situation the designer is faced with using a lot of his intuition and awareness of what is going on with the efforts at the forefront of the particular or related application areas.

On policy formation in the field? When's the last time you saw systematic replication research conducted and reported in the literature?
