Re: Best Blogs

I'd honestly have to say JVN's.

http://blog.iamjvn.com/

Non FRC related but still pretty funny (engineering related): http://www.monkeyduty.com/

I'd start from the beginning, so page 29 or whatever it is.

Re: Best Blogs

JVN's is a must and you should go back and read his posts from the 2011 build season there are some real gems there.

Several teams have build logs and blogs that get updated sparing. (My team's, Fighting Calculators, etc.)

The FRCdirector Blog is where you can get official FRC updates (http://frcdirector.blogspot.com)

All the links mentioned so far are great.

Re: Best Blogs

While not a FIRST blog, I enjoy:

Core77 which brings a lot of neat design material and often covers the artist/designers processes.

Re: Best Blogs

A great blog that has been started by Justin Foss on team 2168. I check it regularly and his content is very well thought out and produced.

Ah, Joe you beat me to it. Even though it hasn't been updated in awhile, another blog I find interesting is from Chris Picone on 2791. It not only cover this season and the past two seasons. Each one of his posts are a good read, plenty of information on mechanical knowledge and strategy.

The link to Chris Picone's blog is posted incorrectly. It should be: http://chrismakesbots.wordpress.com/
