John brings up a good point. Just what good are examples in a portfolio about
toasters, VCRs, and small open-source projects?

The documents that we normally produce at work and the documents that a
prospective employer will want us to produce will be about complex applications
or hardware that may take months to document. At the very least they take weeks
of full-time employment to create the final deliverables.

Not sure if many can afford to put the time into an unpaid side project that
would correctly reflect their true capabilities.
