Cultural Norms Wiki

One of the blogs I read about Italy posted an interesting link this morning.

The website linked is called Culture Crossing, and it's a community-built, wiki-style site where people can post about norms and cultural actions in countries all over the world. Some of the norms covered are greetings, taboos, personal space, and business attire. The entry on Italy has a good start; maybe we can add to it after our time here?
