Tal refocuses the debate on what is probably THE core issue: i.e. Quality
(The "Q" Factor). Significantly, it seems to me that he sees the deciding
factor as being whether your presentation *content* is well-organized,
well-written and defensible, rather than its presentation *platform* (be it
PDF, paper, MS Word doc or online website). Can't argue with that.

That said, an online resume/website/portfolio is a plus. If you embrace the
Q Factor, it can be a Big Plus. As Tal notes, it's a great way to store and
present the types of collateral that a rigorous decisionmaker demands.

BTW: Jack's website has some good examples of how to Do it Right
