Digital Culture

If we begin with the word culture, E. B. Tylor1 has a useful statement (via Wikipedia):

Culture is "that complex whole which includes knowledge, belief, art, morals, law, custom, and any other capabilities and habits acquired by man as a member of society." (Tylor 1871:1)

Raymond Williams2 has a thorough account of the origin and uses of the word.

When the adjective digital is added to the term, the original definition can be nuanced to include all those elements described by Tylor in relation to the digital. This is still a bit woolly but is probably a good starting point.

The 2nd edition of Charlie Gere's book3 called Digital Culture is a useful exploration of the term.
