Today we started working on our deeper dive topics with our new group. I am in the VR group. We will be using more Unity to build different things like phone apps and games. On the topic of our stress project, we made a lot of progress last night and finished the game manager and the animation manager scripts. We can now start testing and tuning our game. This is going to take some time and we still have a lot of work to do, but I am really proud of our team and what we have built so far. I am excited to start the next stage of our project and experiment.
Just a moment ago I was talking with Abby about the expression “the blind leading the blind.” I think a more interesting expression is “the blind leading the deaf.” The blind leading the blind is analogous to a team with little diversity; whereas the blind leading the deaf, or rather working with the deaf, is analogous to a team with diversity. People with different skill and ideas form a strong team. This type of team is able to achieve things that no one member could on their own. Each individual member of our stress project team brought and developed a diverse set of skills that allowed us to build our model in a really short time. No one of us could have done it on our own. I guess teamwork is all about finding the people that are different and learning the skills that your team needs and doesn’t have. If your blind find someone who is deaf.
