Discussion on: GitHub Profile as a Portfolio: Your thoughts?

I'm not too sure oh having your entire profile readme as your portfolio. It can be a great introduction, yeah! The main purpose of these readmes, in my opinion, should be to give a brief overview of who you are, what you like, and what you have been working with/on for the past week, etc.

I don't know how impressed people would be if they see your portfolio is literally a brief one page summary of yourself...on GitHub.

Don't get me wrong, profile readmes are great. I personally love them, though a person would (probably) be more impressed if he/she saw a more interactive, colorful and beautifully designed webage (like this one), rather than a 1 page brief introduction to your skills and projects. Especially if you're a web developer.
