You see portfolio sites all over the web from web designers showcasing the sites that they’ve designed.  And now and then you see web developers posting a portfolio including a few sites they’ve managed the HTML coding for.  But you never see a portfolio of a developer showing the site architecture that they’ve rocked.

Here’s a weird paradox:  I want to showcase the work I’ve done for clients.  The work I do is primarily writing site-specific code to enable a certain unique feature on a site, or assembling the parts to produce that feature.  But often I can’t realistically use a screenshot of the site to characterize that work, since the screenshot is of the graphic design, which is something I had nothing to do with.
