I would be a little too optimistic to say that a project like this isn’t a tad difficult because of the restraints put on us for both the time and the distance. However, coming from that as well, I am right now able to communicate with people from across the globe! That is so incredible to me!
So, in the globalization piece of these interactions, I have to say that technology has been the most apparent factor. Without the use of this technology, we would not be able to really even connect at all. As we move forward with our project, I have high hopes for what we can accomplish for the aesthetic/presentation piece, but our timeline is good. We have decided to focus on more the cultural aspects of both places, which balances out nicely.
I think the question we should be asking ourselves going forward, though, is what if we agree with the same time points that other people put on theirs as well, and engage in healthy debate about why/why not we think these historical points are important, and under which globalization “category” they fall under!
