Does anyone ever know what happened to JVN’s blog: http://blog.iamjvn.com? The link is now broken for me but it was an incredibly inspirational blog for me to read. I loved all the little projects JVN put on there. One was a video of a world record rubber-band flying airplane that could fly for over an hour, another would be a “walking picnic table” that JVN would always comment on in the most interesting ways. JVN also in 2011 documented the whole design process for team 148 using secret-code words for different sub-mechanisms and it was amazing to learn from such an accomplished team how they carried out their design process.
I learned so much about design and iteration (I think it was called "Life is Iterative), does anyone know if it got moved or if they could convince JVN to bring it back? I don’t know if he knew how much it meant to some of us. Thanks so much!
I stopped blogging 148 when I left the team and IFI after the 2012 season. As much as I love to share the ins and outs of the FIRST season, I personally never felt that I had the time to do it justice.
Wow, that really is fantastic. I would certainly chip in to at least get it hosted again.
This level of description and detail is exactly what I am looking for to step up my team’s design knowledge. If I could point one of our top design students at a full version of this blog he would go crazy on it
