    Actually, I find the petri dish metaphor for media quite appealing.

    Only thing is, it's what happens when the petri dish is left open.

    [Opera appreciation may require a closed petri dish.]

    As to all those definitions of culture, I can't help but wonder if any of
    them were different in ways that fundamentally change the way one thinks
    about culture.
