 although it is slightly off topic. there was a designer contest here
(shikoku, japan) and one `object` was a panel with icons that were
supposed to represent `modern life`. i was surprised to see that some that
could make sense in japan seemed totally weird in a french context or
could be taken with a totally different meaning. i`ll try to find the
panel and describe the icon and their meaning if you are interested.
