TCIs (third culture individuals), TCAs (third culture authors)

Just re-read the wikipedia page for Third Culture Kids: I like that the label is evolving.  TCI (third culture individual) catches the third culture-ness while not misleadingly suggesting that the phenomenon only happens to kids.  Yes, the dislocation during developmental years is key, but yes, it is also the case that adults raised in dislocated circumstances are third culture too.

And Jessica Sanfilippo still deserves credit for introducing me to the term third culture author (TCA).
