How much do context matter?

We all know that context matters, but seldom have the point been tried as directly as in this article in The Washington Post. One of the greatest violinists in the world with a $3,5 million stradivarius plays some masterpieces of classical music at a metro station. The big question is, will people appreciate the music in that context? Will people stop? Will they give him money? Will he be treated better than a regular street musician?

I don't want to spoil the article for you, but it is sufficient to say, this article answers a lot of questions about context.

The link to the article was discoveret at the Freakonomics blog.

I think context matters a lot. For example I have a website of whatsapp for pc and if design isn't fine, I think that people wold not like to return.
