User Registration Processes: Double Opt-in success rates

Can anyone direct me to research on drop out rates for online systems that require a user to click a link in a verification email to complete a registration process? So far the only research I've found is related to email marketing. The system I am working on requires the user to be more actively engaged in the application and therefore I don't think the email research is applicable.

RE: [IxDA] Is the mouse dead?

There was a similar project that used a microphone affixed to the table that would detect and measure the change in pitch as the user scratched or tapped the surface. It had the advantage that the user could place their hand anywhere on a desk, so they were not constrained to a particular location like this infrared solution. I wonder what the resolution of either of them would be.

JOB (contract, San Francisco, USA): ID/IA/IxD

Fluid's got a need for a stellar mid- to senior-level contractor for
immediate work with both an IA and IxD skill set. I'm sorry, we are
interviewing local (SF Bay Area, California) candidates only, due to
high-touch working style, tight communication needs, secret technical
hocus-pocus, and our shadowy subterranean lair. ;-)

Please respond to the email within this posting, not to me personally.

Plurality of Voice

I am growing disgusted with the IxDA list. I wonder if I am the only one.

Many conversations lately have featured a very small number of contributors very vocally arguing minute details in a long serial of posts. As much as I have enjoyed the open and inclusive nature of this list, I am now wishing there was a daily limit of posts that would force certain people to be more thoughtful in what they say, and how often they say it.

Please try to be your own editor.

User Experience Strategy

I've written an article about user experience strategy...


...and would love feedback. I'm especially interested in learning about
articles, presentations, or anything else I missed that deals specifically
with user experience strategy. I'd also be interested to hear reactions to
the strange connections I'm making between UX strategy and futurity.

Difficult - but not impossible.

A couple of years ago I thought through the same problem (having done all my
work for clients so not able to demonstrate prior work - besides most of it
was team work as has been discussed)

My 'solution' was (and still is) to write general papers that I then publish
on my own website:


One of which has been downloaded now over 15,000 times over the last couple
of years.
