Usability of registration forms online
I've taken a recent interest in usability and accessibility, and James over at Column Two just brought an intersting article to my attention: A Usability Test of Web-based User Assistance, where WinWrites.com tries to practice what they preach: Usability of Online Help. Absolutely readworthy material for anyone setting up a website involving (complex) user registration forms/processes.
I once worked on the usability side of an online bank, where many, many forms were involved. I would agree with these points about usability.

"A topic related to registrations is avoiding machine-automated registrations (preventing spammers from registering thousands of ''garbage'' yahoo.com and hotmail accounts, for example)."

"According to Wired, Friendster is the hottest thing online since weblogs and sliced bread. If someone makes a similar service that on top of having all the features even is accesible and usable; I'd consider it."
