Chief Detail Officer

I want to scream.

That happens a lot.

Fortunately for those around me, I don’t often actually scream.

I just finished reviewing a presentation deck for a (literally) multibillion-dollar deal for a scientific project of world-changing proportion.

This is the seventh version of the deck where I have requested that the same shallow mistakes be fixed (including typos.)

All of my substantive suggestions have been addressed, but these shallow problems remain a distraction for myself and the other reviewers.

Will these shallow problems accelerate the funding process? I think not.

I think that they should hire me. Or my son’s high school English teacher. Or my son. Or use a free plugin like Grammarly.

I want a title. CDO. Chief Detail Officer.

Russell has started three successful companies, one of which helped agencies of the federal government become very early adopters of open source software, long before that term was coined. His first project saved The American taxpayer 250 million dollars. In his work within federal agency, he was often called, “the arbiter of truth,” facilitating historically hostile groups and factions to effectively work together towards common goals
