I spent a month on the paper submission of Expressive 2018, which ended up well I guess – practice the writing helps me get clear about the project and contribution.
Now the question is, should I keep working on the paper to finish it, or spend more time on the startup?
There’re still a lot work to be done of the paper. I think it makes sense to finish the paper right now based on my friend’s notes, then refine it after receiving reviews from Expressive 2018.
Startup also requires a lot work:
- Publish the website
- Put up the prototype (glad it’s getting more detailed after talking to a lot people of the startup. Speak loudly is so important!)
- Market research
- pros and cons of existing 3D animation tools
- what do non-professionals want based on the animation prototype
- Resource: How to start a startup by Sam Altman
Maybe I can get up early in the morning to work on startup, then go for the full-time job, after that work on the paper..
