comment How to Address Unclickable Tags That Look like Buttons?
I think you'll find this to be the cause of the problem. On a touch display device like tablets users expect some interactions, and styling the tags like a button is going to have that effect, especially on mobile because there are no hover-over behaviour. Is there a reason why you don't want to do a comma-separated list as it would be one logical solution? I would perhaps style it as a plain table with header columns and that could solve the problem.

Also keep in mind that you have to think about more than just text because a website will contain audio, images and other forms of communication. I am sure if you work with ThoughtWorks they will have a good amount of data from clients in different countries/cultures/regions to draw on. I would be interested in some of your findings so please keep this thread updated :)

Higher context needs less words because the context provides the information you need to interpret the meaning of the words. Lower context needs to be more explicit because there is reliance on the words to provide the information to understand the full meaning. For example, there are many languages that commonly omit pronouns in conversation because it is assumed the people involved in the conversation have a reference point for who is being referred to.

comment Interactive documents v websites. What research/studies exist to cover when one should be used over the other?
I don't think there's a fast and hard rule on this one, simply because there are many different constraints and use cases as you have pointed out, so it is just a matter of choosing the most suitable solution for your requirements. The best user experience is the implementation that solves the users' problems in the most suitable way.

It seems like from the Wikipedia entry that the meaning of high/low context culture is clear, but whether a country is really high or low context culture is less clearly defined. I think you also have to look at the context of communication, as some languages are richer in written systems and some are richer in spoken dialects, etc.

Can you explain a little bit about what high or low context culture means? I am not familiar with the term but that's probably due to my general ignorance about culture...

comment Nonparametric vs. Parametric tests
I am not suggesting that UX people don't care, but I am curious that in the area of mobile gaming where conflicts because revenue and user experience seem to work against each other. I asked a question about repetitive strain injury prevention in mobile applications and no one provided an answer...

comment Should I code my own numeric keyboard? It's bad UX?
This is similar to debates about whether QWERTY, Dvorak or Colemak is a more ergonomic and efficient keyboard layout. I think it might be application specific but in general you need a good reason to defy convention (unless it is convention for convention sake only).

comment What is a wireframe deck?
It feels like a very 'corporate/consulting' or 'US' term, as I seldom hear it used in any other context.
