b. "It all started with three brothers, two thousand dollars and one server in the closet. The brothers Mokhtarzada figured everyone is getting an email address, one day everyone will have a website too. So they set out to create a site-building service easy enough for their mother to use. Turns out, if you make it easy to build, they will come – with over 30 million people visiting Webs sites every month ... and counting."
