John Boyd presentation video


Recommended Posts

After reading multiple books about Col. Boyd and hearing him mentioned in many other places, it was cool to find videos of the man on youtube giving a presentation:



He talks about the FX program which eventually became the F-15. I haven't watched them all yet. I'm hoping he gets in to E-M and the light-weight fighter program.


EDIT: Even better...he talks about his more broad concepts.

He's also the father of the concept called OODA loop, which we all do on a daily basis in some fashion.


O- observe

O- orientate

D- decide

A- act


He would exclaim, "if you get inside someone's OODA loop then you can beat them at whatever it is", whether it's flying, close quarters combat, or even debating.

To whom it may concern,

I am an idiot, unfortunately for the world, I have a internet connection and a fondness for beer....apologies for that.

Thank you for you patience.



Many people don't want the truth, they want constant reassurance that whatever misconception/fallacies they believe in are true..

If you look on the related videos, it looks like someone posted a recording of his 'Conceptual Spiral' brief:



This is interesting stuff since recordings, let alone videos, of Col. Boyd are supposed to be almost non-existent.
