Mousighi for the Masses


There's a bunch of dot-com Irooni millionaires up in Silicon Valley, of course. The two most famous being the founder of eBay, Pierre Omidyar, and a former Google executive who makes millions and breaks a billion.

But now there's a new Web 2.0 wave in southern California. If you've listened to music on the internet anytime in the last few years, chances are you've used iLike.

The site is founded by two Persian siblings, Hadi and Ali Partovi. The latter Partovi was a musician himself in Seattle in the 90s, which he could afford doing after selling GarageBand.com to Microsoft for a paltry $250 million smackeroos. That site was co-founded with the guitarist from the Talking Heads.
