A few days, invited by Slide.com Shanghai, I had a great pleasure to have the chance to interview with Max Levchin, who co-founded Paypal in 1998 then sold it to eBay for more than $1.5 billion at the age of 26. Now he is the CEO and visionary behind Slide.com, the largest social entertainment company in the world and developer of the most engaging applications on social networks.

The interview took only 20min or so, but it covers different topics, such as Slide, Slide China, geek culture, spirit of geeks, view on Chinese startup environment, how geeks should do business etc.

The following is the highlights. (Note: part of the interview will be co-published on Founders magazine in Chinese.) Hope you will enjoy it. At least for me, it’s very very inspiring.
