His preference is to document via video although I am encouraging him to write it up too.
Since I learned old school by following published documents and printed instructions this method seems to work best for me and I personally think that documentation stands the test of time over a video - even in todays hi tech world. The videos that Joseph does are definitely top notch and easy to follow without the distractions of loud music and foul language that the majority of U tube videos posters seem to think are a necessity. However I will liken a video to a classroom scenario where for several minutes you have the benefit of a quality instructor teaching and walking a viewer through a project much the same way a teacher in a class room does for three quarters of an hour as they explain a new use of a formula or how to derive an answer by only knowing some of the values. As long as everything is fresh in a persons mind and they have the benefit of any notes that may have been posted on the blackboard then things seem pretty straight forward. Once the blackboard has been erased and the teacher has moved on to another lesson over the course of a few days what was once straight forward is now a distant memory as new thoughts and ideas bombard us in todays fast paced world. This is where good accurate documentation shines through much like a reference text book does in the classroom scenario. It can be set on a shelf for three or four days, weeks or months and then looked at to quickly refresh a persons memory to sizes, layout drawings and steps necessary to make a project progress from the "I want to build one of those" to "I built one of those, it works great and I am proud of it". In my teenage years I was fascinated by electronics projects and built many from plans published in hobbyist magazines - these plans always included lists of the parts required and the proper steps to construct the project so that it worked when you were done and what to look for if it did not work. I think that has helped me over the years to try and layout logical steps that I use when I tackle a new project and try to explain the how and why of the steps I post about in my threads so that it may help others. Videos offer a more personal insight with the creator and give the viewer a more one on one being in the same room interaction to walk a person through a project and offer a chance to pass along an overview of a project but without detailed documentation to supplement the project I think in most cases the project will be out of the grasp of copying it for the majority of people. Establishing good documentation abilities now will serve Joseph well in the future as other things and interactions steer and interest him in his lifelong journey. Just my thoughts and opinion. Look forward to seeing the next step in the build on its way to becoming a reality.
