Does anyone have any more details on the following (as clipped
from Boston Globe 10/8/81):
JEFF VANASANO, 15, of the Bronx, beat
more than 2000 competitors in a Rubik's
cube-a-thon in Jackson Township, N.J.,
by solving a Rubik's Cube in 24.67 sec-
onds. Vanasano will go on to the US finals
in Los Angeles in November and there will
be a world championship next spring.
I wonder who sponsored the competition, what form the contest
took, who Vanasano is, what techniques he uses. I found the
analysis of Kimmo Eriksson's technique by Lars S. Hornfeldt
(9 May 1981 08:47-EDT) to be most enlightening, and would
love to see similar analyses.
