Yes, you can live alone and build yourself a cottage like Robinson on the island. But unless you want to live on an island, you certainly need good contacts and a good team to achieve a goal, especially in business and engineering.
We certainly already know this. It sure takes time to find the right people isn’t it?
I’m a heavy user of meebo, an online chatting system that allows you to login to different IM systems (ICQ, AIM, MSN, YIM, GTalk etc) at the same time. They have certainly came a long way and keeps on improving. I reckon that they have a good team of people. They work hard, achieve goals while having fun, and that’s what life is really about.
