any ideas for icon research?

I need to prepare a strategy document for a large financial client
that explores appropriate visual metaphors for "paperless billing" or
"e-statements" in a global context. I will include a competitive icon
audit, but I'm not finding a lot of icons for paperless billing. The
biggest challenge for me is the global context. I can easily suggest
an appropriate metaphor for Norhern Californians, but how can I
research which visual metaphors might work for people in Italy,
Britain, Canada and so on? Any ideas?

Navigation problem

Hi all,
I am working on an online application that explores the anatomy of certain
body systems.

In one section, we have a cross-cut diagram of a body part (the eye).

Pie Menu

It's "mystery meat" and it's lame.

Pie Menu Spotted on the Web

I've been trying to shoe-horn a pie/radial menu into just about every
experiential site I've worked on this year so it's nice to see someone
actually get one out [1]. However, this Converse example isn't the greatest
execution (I'm not keen on the dynamic element of the menu) and the context
of the slightly bewildering shopping/filter elements detracts from the
overall experience. How do the IxDA community feel about this site (ignoring
the nauseating soundtrack)?

[off-topic] work for equity

Hi -

Sorry for the slightly off-topic posting, but the quality of this list
makes it my first choice; and I expect some of you have experience with
this question.

I may have a chance to work for a small (3-person) startup. They have
seed capital, a good idea, a wireframe, and are now looking to design a
working prototype. My role would be designer/UI/UX guy.

I'm impressed with the team and the idea, and would like to negotiate
for equity rather than pay (it's a freelance position).
