What are people's thoughts on the registration flow where the user puts in an email first, has to click the verification link, then sets username/password/finish signing up?

Any pros/cons over getting the profile info and then verifying the account?

That's pretty much what we do on changelog.com except we don't bother with a password.

There is a way you can join and give us all your info up front, but most people just give us their email and we go from there. Once they click the confirm link they are directed to their profile where they can fill out the rest of the info if they like.

Works pretty well, in my experience.
