comment Why does the Facebook registration page require you to retype the email and NOT the password?
I don't personally think it's worth the -1 - but Quora doesn't let you see the material without logging in.

comment Definition and example to distinguish qualitative and quantitative research
I disagree. I encounter UX folk in industry doing user research all of the time. Indeed I've seen a positive resurgence of it in recent years. Just last week I was talking to a client about diary studies they had run. It very much depends on the organisation. Things like Lean Startup have brought classic qual techniques like interviewing to the table in many organisations.

Agree with Marjan. Not see this myself. Not seen any research that supports it.

comment How to enforce persona usage in company's design process?
++ to what Roger said here. Enforcement is exactly the wrong approach. You need to work with the people and show them the benefits that the good use of persona can bring the product team as a whole.
