Need Help on Web Portal Logins

<discuss at lists.interactiondesigners.com>Hi Guys,

As a part of a startup we are launching a web portal in the domain of
student careers.
During our experience strategy there is an issue that seems to be nudging us

It is observed that logins and sign ups are majorly irritating for users as
it takes their time and needs them to fill up forms etc.
In our application we have some information content and some playful and
functional spaces.....Both are critical to the application as a whole.

[PLUG] My Blog - Edible/Usable - the usability of cooking and eating

I've actually been working on it for some time now, but I finally feel like it's time to officially debut my blog to the IXDA community:

If you get a chance, check out http://www.edibleusable.com - my blog about usability, cooking and eating. I know it sounds like a bit of a mash up, but I'm hoping it works.

Any thoughts, ideas, comments and suggestions are welcome and appreciated!
