Commentary: When Cultures and Computers Collide: Rethinking Computer-Mediated Communication According to International and Intercultural Communication Expectations.
St. Amant, Kirk
Journal of Business and Technical Communication, v16 n2 p196-214 Apr 2002
Notes that online communication technology makes intercultural communication faster and more direct than was ever before possible, but, in doing so, it may also amplify cultural rhetorical differences. Proposes that communication researchers need to compare the communication patterns noted in the computer-mediated communication (CMC) literature and in the intercultural communication literature to see where these communication patterns collide.
