    Free and easy to install, instant messaging is a great vessel for chance interaction. Isaacs et al (2002) of AT&T discussed the concept of enabling chance interaction through mobile instant messaging. Although their research involved heavy use of prototypes that are not yet widely available, it can help us realize ways of enabling chance interaction today.

However, simply applying traditional survey techniques to the Web can result in significant shortcomings in the data so gathered. Recent research has been directed at these issues, within the context of Web surv... View full abstract»
