    I disagree that's it's unprofessional and lazy. It's an iterative experiment (I should probably switch the link to direct to the github commits page). I don't have the time to plan out a portfolio to the level I would plan out client work, nor do I really think that's a valuable use of my time. Because of that, I've come up with this solution. I think being transparent about that is valuable. It may not seem professional to a freelance/contract client, but frankly I don't give a shit. That's not what I built the site for. I'd have a completely different feel to my site if I was trying to solicit work.

    It's a portfolio, not a company. It's one of very few places where I can just do whatever I want with little to no regard for affordances or usability. I mean, the only contact link in the site is hidden inside a giant "KTHXBYE" that's only affordance is a cursor change.

    TL;DR: Nah, It's a site I work on for fun, to give an image of me as a person and designer, not to solicit client work.

      Cool man that works perhaps when you have more time it can all be refined, I think in my opinion I prefer to see more fleshed out portfolios but given your objectives I totally see where you're coming from.
