Google's looking for more people to take part in user experience surveys. This could be your chance to improve current products or even ones that haven't been released yet.

From the FAQ: "You certainly don’t need to be a computer expert or Internet enthusiast to sign up. The range of people we’re hoping will sign up actually includes anyone that has ever used the Internet in any way."

Done! When it asked me how I found out about it, I just gave the URL of this post.

To my surprise, the FAQ doesn't mention Cambridge as one of the Google offices people might be asked to visit.

ETA: Why does LJ say there are three comments here, but show me only my own comment?

Huh. His layout is broken. The bottom of your comment is missing and everything after it. I had to switch to ?style=mine to reply.

There's still a conspicuous absence. There's nothing at the bottom of the page, after the last comment, e.g. no page footer, nor a concluding "comment" link. Is that a style decision on your part, or something still not rendering?

Done. They didn't ask for a password, so they must be confident...

Some days, I find myself really wishing I fell outside the sample range.

I... huh. I would like to believe I contributed in a small way to this happening, by a particular flame I flamed a few weeks ago. *whistles happily*

Was this something you posted to your own journal, or somewhere else that I can read?

I don't know it's worth hunting up -- it was a very concise (!!!), very UX technical, very pointed comment in the google forum for the product in question, in the midst of a huge user uprising. Probably shorter than this one. :)

So I thought, cool! I like doing this kind of stuff [from both ends, more or less], so I'll sign up.

Oh, Google. You just don't learn, do you?
