I particularly like the point about black and white having different connotations in different cultures.

I think designing for different cultures is something that needs more attention. Paul boag mentioned it, saying that whilst most users in (Japan, I think, but could remember wrong) used smartphones, they mainly used some old version of mobile opera.
Another point is covered in a w3c article: names. I never knew that in some places your name was still derived from your hometown. An interesting read: http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-personal-names
