Writing documents together using collaborative editing tools has become extremely common with the widespread availability of tools such as Google Docs. The design of such tools, rooted in early CSCW research, has historically been focused on providing awareness of the presence and activities of one's collaborators. Evidence from a recent qualitative study,(More)
In a series of three experiments requiring selection of real objects for action, we investigated whether characteristics of the planned action and/or the " affordances " of target and distractor objects affected interference caused by distractors. In all of the experiments, the target object was selected on the basis of colour and was presented alone or(More)
This paper presents an overview of the User Experience (UX) team at Google. We focus on four aspects of working within Google's product development organization: (1) a bottom-up 'ideas' culture, (2) a data-driven engineering approach, (3) a fast, highly iterative web development cycle, and (4) a global product perspective of designing for multiple(More)
It has been proposed that the underlying deficit for some simultanagnosics is the inability to bilaterally orient attention in space due to parietal damage. In five experiments, we examine the performance of a patient with simultanagnosia secondary to bilateral occipito-parietal lesions, IC, in naming pairs of line-drawings. With simultaneous presentation(More)
1 When people attend to a target stimulus dimension , manipulations of non-relevant stimulus dimensions affect response latencies and error rates (MacLeod, 1991). For example, when people are asked to name the colour in which words are written , non-relevant colour-words interfere with the naming task (Stroop, 1935). Colour-words incon-gruent with the(More)
