The basis of successful collaborations

“They hit it off, and decided to collaborate, eventually producing PayPal.”

This was a comment on a program called The Virtual Revolution about the beginnings of PayPal. While the story of PayPal as a new global monetary system is interesting, it’s the first four words of the quote that really interests me.

That’s because I believe the best collaborations (successful and satisfying) are based on a foundation of friendship.
