There's nothing wrong with taking a bow, and being able
to put your name on something and say "I did this" is one
of the strongest motivatores i know of to get people to take
pride in their work, and value it's quality.
For decades programs have had "About" commands/screens
that give you info on the program, and frequently who
developed it -- i see no reason why WWW based applications
should be any different. Having an "About" link at the
top/bottom of every page of a WWW based tool might be
considered to obtrusive by some, but It's perfectly
reasonable to put a small link at the bottom of the front
page / spalsh screen / login page for your app.
And if the higher ups at your company are really anal,
just remember: easter eggs don't have to be very obvious,
and spending an hour on an easter egg that only 1% of an
apps users can be more encouraging then spending 5 hours
on a high quality credits screen that 99& of the users see.
(I know from experience that if you embed an ascii art
photo of someone in your source code, and display it
only when someone clicks on a 20x20 transparent gif floating
in the margin of your page, no one ever notices it when
installing your software.)
