"If you are going to err, err on the side of brevity. (Save the
details for the interview.) ... people will use your
resume to reject you, so give them as little ammunition as possible!"

I think that's wrong, at least in this business. If you make the
resume too short, you won't have room for all the keywords you need to
get through the screening software (or have your resume turn up in
searches).
