Should Google be my ePortfolio means of creation?

Now I use gmail alot (except at the moment because I have for the first time ever been temporarily locked out with an error 500 message), I have an iGoogle page as a result of my participation in the Reflect and Connect course I did in early 2011, I have connected my Google calendar with my Outlook calendar, I have created a Blogger blog as a vehicle for my lunch time learning presentations on using Web2.0 tools, I have created a Google site (only 1 page so far) to document my trip last year to France and I Google everything (not giving other search engines a thought) so it is obvious to me that I should consider creating an ePortfolio using Google. I want a smartphone and have been tempted by the iphone but because it cannot handle flash I am now leaning toward a Samsung Galaxy S or a HTC smartphone so Google again. My theory is that if I Google my life I will have less incompatability issues. Would anyone disagree?
Today I have been ratting around in the MOOC and especially Helen Barrett’s ePortfolio and the links contained therein. I came across the following Slideshare that I think is worth sharing with my readers.

Helen Barrett is an ePortfolio Guru. The world needs more people with passion for a topic like her who are willing to share their knowledge. From one of Helen’s links I also came across a blog post by Karen Barnstable listing some of the benefits of ePortfolios.

Making it visual

This morning I could not access my gmail account so I got into the MOOC and started to have a look at some ePortfilios in the gallery. Some people certainly spend considerable time creating the ePortfolios and ensuring that they maintain a degree of currency. An ePortfolio should be a living thing. This can be achieved via linking your blog to it and updatig skills and experience documentation evidence as it is aquired. That is the advantage of it being a “e” portfolio – it is dynamic.
Then I popped off to Twitter to check my tweets and send a tweet about my frustration at not being able to get into my gmail account. Thanks to Penny who acknowledged my cyberspace presence. While following links in Twitter I came across a comic creating tool and decided to have a play. I was really please with the results and it was very easy to use. Maybe I should have created it a week or two ago. See my results below.

How else could I use this tool?………. Any suggestions?
