Kelly, Ryan and Gooch, Daniel (2012): Understanding participation and opportunities for design from an online postcard sending community. In: Proceedings of DIS12 Designing Interactive Systems 2012. pp. 568-571. Available online

The advent of Internet communication has seen much personal correspondence move from paper-based into digital form. But while the Internet is often associated with the decline in paper-based communication, it also provides opportunities to exchange traditional ephemera in new, exciting ways. We present here an analysis of Postcrossing, an online system that facilitates the sending of non-digital postcards among random strangers. Via a survey study of Postcrossing users, we elicit six key factors that contribute to the Postcrossing experience. We consider how these elements might be carried over into other digital communication technologies.

Gooch, Daniel and Watts, Leon (2012): YourGloves, hothands and hotmits: devices to hold hands at a distance. In: Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2012. pp. 157-166. Available online

There is a growing body of work in HCI on the design of communication technologies to help support lovers in long distance relationships. We build upon this work by presenting an exploratory study of hand-holding prototypes. Our work distinguishes itself by basing distance communication metaphors on elements of familiar, simple co-located behaviours. We argue that the combined evocative power of unique co-created physical representations of the absent other can be used by separated lovers to generate powerful and positive experiences, in turn sustaining romantic connections at a distance.

Gooch, Daniel and Watts, Leon (2012): sleepyWhispers: sharing goodnights within distant relationships. In: Adjunct Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2012. pp. 61-62. Available online

There is a growing body of work in HCI on the design of communication technologies to help support lovers in long distance relationships. We build upon this work by presenting an exploratory study of a prototype device intended to allow distant lovers to share goodnight messages. Our work distinguishes itself by basing distance communication metaphors on elements of familiar, simple co-located behaviours. We argue that voice remains an under-utilised media when designing interactive technologies for long-distant couples. Through exploring the results of a 2-month case study we present some of the unique challenges that using voice entails.

Gooch, Daniel and Watts, Leon (2011): The Magic Sock Drawer project. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2011 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2011. pp. 243-252. Available online

In this paper we describe the design of a intimate communication system, the Magic Sock Drawer. The system allows close friends to send drawn or typed digital notes to one another which are then automatically printed at the other end. The system allows us to investigate a number of design decisions that will have an impact on how communication systems create feelings of closeness between remote partners. The four design concepts explored include 1-to-1 communication, personalization, tangibility and location. We present the results of a 6-week pilot study using the system and the impact it has had on the study participants' relationship.

Gooch, Daniel (2011): Socialising presence. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2011 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2011. pp. 1049-1052. Available online

Long distance relationships are not well supported by current communication technologies. Although these technologies are superb at communicating facts, they lack an emotional element which I argue is necessary for people who care about one another and yet who must live apart. My PhD aims to address this problem by examining social presence in technologically mediated relationships. Thus far I have built a number of teletangible devices to mimic human actions across a distance. I will deploy these systems within a number of long-distance relationships. I expect my research to result in new understanding which will lead to communication technologies with higher levels of social presence, thus supporting long-distance relationships.
