The power of collaboration

Last night I went into an article I am working on with colleagues, and saw two of them "in" the Google Drive document. We are just putting the finishing touches on the articles, so all of us were excited to put in the last citations and other small details.

Tongue in check, I asked, so, now what. David, do you have any ideas?

A half hour later, we were feverishly working in another document, laying out the architecture for another paper. This morning when I woke up, there were a couple of pages already written.

Such is the power of well-executed collaborations, with colleagues who are passionate. Get them together using the right tools (e.g. Google Drive),  create a bit of structure, and wow.

The key is finding the right people and creating the right working context. See past threads for tips!
