"Confirm password" field - Superfluous?

I have a design for a new user registration form in which I am proposing to
not use a "Confirm password" field and would like your feedback on this
decision.
The form will have 4 fields, all of which are required:

1: User name (This will be supplied to the user prior to their using this
form)
2: Password
3: Hint question
4: Hint answer

The form also has some explanatory text that describes the use of the hint
question and answer which is that the pair of fields will be used when the
user forgets their password.

ID vs email address

The email address as user id is becoming the preferred way in my
opinion.

Pros:
an email address is unique;
an email address is easy to remember;
in many cases the system requires the email address also for sending
messages.

Cons:
still not everyone has an email address;
an email address may change over time.

Did you consider OpenID?

Examples of Good Customer Support Sites

When users can't find the help they need contextually and land on a
customer support site, how can we create a good experience for them?

I've been looking at:

Adobe
http://www.adobe.com/support/

Apple
http://www.apple.com/support/

Amazon
http://tinyurl.com/2wwact

Does anyone have examples of effective customer/technical support
sites?

I'm interested in best practices on surfacing relevant help
topics/tools to users so they can self-serve with ease.

Thanks!

Companies / Agencies that do service design or tangible stuff?

Hi, 

I'm at the start of my XDA path really, and am wrapping up graduate school applications. I'm really interested in doing tangible interaction and service design. I am wondering if anyone knows of companies or firms that do this kind of work? I'm looking to connect with interaction designers in LA who are also interested in this type of design. Thanks a bunch!

Conversation around the IxDA Awards

Here's the link to the short list and finalists and winners of the IxDA Awards: http://awards.ixda.org/entries/

Steve Baty during the closing ceremonies of the conference said that we do these awards and similar initiatives to create a discourse in the community about them. I know I have little conversations here and there about them, but I don't see it happening in a way that moves things; that impacts the larger group. So I'll put this out here.

Tag cloud generators

Hi All,

I'm doing an evaluation of the publically accessible tag cloud
generators. Tagging is quite popular now, but most of the tagging
activities belong to folksonomy, which users tag manually. Tag cloud
generators are used to create tag clouds automatically. There are
ways to generate a tag cloud:

1. Given a piece of text, create a tag cloud according to the
frequency of the words.
2. Given a URL of a web page, generate a tag cloud based on the
existing links on that web page

I found several tag cloud generators on the web and use them for my
study.
