  17. 17. AM+A Aaron Marcus and Associates, Inc., www.AMandA.com, 17 Next Steps  Analyze how Web 2.0 sites differ, or not, per optimum culture dimensions  Develop database with examples for the implication for each design component per each cultural dimension and gather cultural values of each country/culture through empirical research to support new culturebase  Future: Much remains to be researched; new tools can make culture-centered design of Web 2.0 sites and communities more effective: tools, templates, treasure chests of content
