Recent research examines how and why people abandon self tracking tools. We extend this work with new insights drawn from people reflecting on their experiences after they stop tracking, examining how designs continue to influence people even after abandonment. We further contrast prior work considering abandonment of health and wellness tracking tools with(More)
This paper discusses the approach taken by Concentrating Technologies (CT), Spectrolab, and Arizona Public Service (APS) to demonstrate a High Concentration Photovoltaic (HCPV) module using Spectrolab's GaInP/GaInAs/Ge triple-junction solar cells. This module is currently connected to an inverter, feeding electricity into the grid at the Solar Test &(More)
We study the inclusion of a social awareness stream (SAS) in the peer-to-peer payment app Venmo. While SASs are prominent in many social network sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, Venmo's use offers an illustrative example of how SASs can be used in task-oriented apps, particularly in a domain, finance, which people often view as sensitive.
