Sat in on a nice e-portfolio presentation this morning (Kenneth Chapman and Matt Fisher). The product will do everything you want, as well as unplug the kitchen sink. But I feel like the author of this post: "Creating a new 'self' every time we join a social network is a pain! Todd calls for a 'portable profile' that includes a suggestion by Tony MacDonnell for a 'portable friends system'." Yes, you can import your LMS ID into an LMS e-portfolio. And maybe I can carry the portfolio out into the world with me. But can I use the same profile on MySpace, Facebook, and in my school LMS? See also Tony Hirst on the portability of identities in Facebook plug-ins.
