Advancements in information technologies offer opportunities for designing and deploying innovative market mechanisms. For example, combinatorial auctions, in which bidders can bid on combinations of goods, can increase the economic efficiency of a trade when goods have complementarities. However, lack of real-time bidder support tools has been a major(More)
We build upon the real-time bid evaluation metrics developed by Adomavicius and Gupta (2005) that can present bidders with exact price information whenever a bidder wants to explore her alternatives, thereby providing a continuous environment. In this appendix, we provide technical details of the computational real-time bidder support capabilities. Let I be(More)
We present the results of two controlled behavioral studies on the effects of online recommendations on consumers' economic behavior. In the first study, we found strong evidence that participants' willingness to pay was significantly affected by randomly assigned song recommendations, even when controlling for participants' preferences and demographics.

Combinatorial auctions – in which bidders can bid on combinations of goods – can increase the economic efficiency of a trade when goods have complementarities. Recent theoretical developments have lessened the computational complexity of these auctions, but the issue of cognitive complexity remains an unexplored barrier for the online marketplace. This(More)
The expectation that information and communication technologies lead users to transcend the constraints of physical separation has been expressed as the death of distance. Perceptions of distance – the psychological distance – significantly influence how individuals evaluate events and objects. As computer mediated communication technologies allow(More)
An important aspect of being able to access the knowledge of individuals is the ability to identify the expertise of others, and the complementary ability to communicate one's own expertise where needed. We initially examine three research questions: What factors are used in judging expertise? Are some of these factors inter-related? Which factors are(More)
