On almost a daily basis, I see more and more the potential value of collaboration between creative minds. A friend and I decided last night to work on a book project together. I already have abou 5 other projects going on that involve collaboration with other people ranging from photographers to writers to musicians. There's something that I get from doing collaborative work that I just can't get out of solo work. Don't get me wrong - I love both - but bringing a second mind into the equation can raise the bar and result in some truly amazing end results. Granted, yes, it can also result in massive headaches and broken friendships, but I'm willing to take on those risks.

How many of you collaborate on projects? Do you see the kind of value in collaboration that I do? Do you see the opposite? Other thoughts?
