Since we're being nitpicky... :) Here's the definition of portfolio:

    1. A portable case for holding material, such as loose papers, 
photographs, or drawings.
    2. The materials collected in such a case, especially when 
representative of a person's work: a photographer's portfolio; an 
artist's portfolio of drawings.

Based on that, I don't see any reason that a portfolio has to be limited 
to design or artistic work. I think it can be any representation of a 
person's work. I use that term to describe my professional site, which 
deals primarily with programming and development, not design, and I'm 
sure many others on thelist do as well.

BTW, Michele, you site looks great. I find the colours and graphics very 
striking, which makes a great first impression.
