It seems they had one of the best start-up teams in the technology industry.

I asked this question to Keith Rabois (ex-PayPal) once and he said it best "it's because we were started in a downturn economy, and it allowed us to hire great people who otherwise would've been starting their own company, so that meant we had the highest IQ per sq/ft than any other company in the valley".

So I think it's great timing, idea, initial team and luck.
