"Globally, different geographies have not only developed at varying speeds, but strengths and weaknesses can also differ culturally. For example, interactivity in Japan is hampered because people prefer to use phones to interact rather than physically touching a screen that others have touched. The more a practitioner knows about the state of the industry from a global perspective and the trends in local countries, the better for them, their products, their users and the industry in general.
