Hypertext version of my resume.

Resumes in the US have two very diverse needs: being both a short quick postcard of what a person does, and providing details about what they are good at. Hard to do well.

After helping many employers sort through dozens of 3 or 4 pages resumes with little to no actual job experience, I have noticed a decided trend of very experienced people to use the Less Is More route. I did the same with my resume.

However, there is always the need for more detail. So I made a hypertext version of the resume with almost exactly the same text. But you can click on any sentence and get, well, probably a lot more information than you wanted.

I'd love to hear what people think about this. And especially if it doesn't work properly in your browser.
