Confirm Email field

Does anyone have or know of any research on whether a "confirm email
address" field is helpful or increases the number of valid email
addresses? I am suggesting to my client that they drop it, on the
assumption that most people would copy and paste the same email
address. (But I don't know if that's true, I only know that's what
I do!)

This is in the context of a checkout, where the email address is good
to have but not mission-critical to the task.

Thanks,
Sheri

game design, ixd, and making people cry

Nice write-up of Brenda Brathwaite's return to non-electronic game design:

<http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/conferences/tgc_2009/6021-TGC-2009-How-a-Board-Game-Can-Make-You-Cry>

One of many things it has me thinking about is how (if?) I can create
emotional responses using only physical objects that carry emotional weight.
