The usability of sign-up forms is a bugbear of any interface design
professional. But what if the real hurdle wasn't usability, but
motivation? Josh will show you techniques to motivate people to sign
up for your web application, from leveraging social influence to
getting rid of the sign up form completely!
Joshua Porter is the founder of Bokardo Design, an interface design
and strategy shop focusing exclusively on social web applications. He
recently wrote the book "Designing for the Social Web". When he is not
designing web sites, Josh is speaking about it at conferences or
writing about it at bokardo.com. He lets off steam by rock climbing
and keeping up with his two-year old.
Please send RSVPs to info at nhupa.org so we have an idea of the head
count for the venue and refreshments.
