Sign Up Forms Must Die!

Sign Up Forms Must Die starts at 24:15 in the conference stream below.
Sign-up forms must die. Because, frankly we can do better than asking people to fill in a bunch of input fields when they want to use our products. In fact, we can get people engaged with digital services in a way that tells them how such services work and why they should care enough to use them. We can do this without explicitly making them fill out a sign-up form as a first step.
In this short talk Luke Wroblewski, author of Web Form Design, outlines three alternatives to sign-up forms: web services, communication tools, and gradual engagement. Find out how these design solutions can help kill sign-up forms in your Web application.
