FlexBot Team Members
Flexbot is mainly an
undergraduate effort at Northwestern University. Moreover, the central team
is small and tight-knit. Most design decisions are done by consensus and
individual team members are free to work on whatever interests them to a
The three main team members (clockwise from top
left in pict below) are :
Nick Trienens - Chief Engineer
Dunham - Chief Architect
Sood - Chief Bad Boy
There's also this
fourth guy who's always
hanging around making useless suggestions and giving out unwanted advice.
Rumor has it he's a homeless graduate student who has been around the
department too long. The developers keep trying to get rid of him, but
somehow he keeps coming back for more abuse. Must be slow of mind, if you
know what I mean. Someday soon, he'll might actually graduate and then maybe
we could all get some work done.
Of course, all the FlexBot team members worship
the entity known only as
Horswill, a mysterious and powerful coding being. When we please him,
the Horswill manifests himself in avatar form, looking akin to Thor with
long flowing blonde locks, carrying a PDA named Mjolnir, striking fear into
the ones who Do Not Indent Properly.
FlexBot has also benefited from occasionally
contractors who have contributed much to the ongoing evolution of FlexBot.
Some of these fine souls are :
