Naming a joint new venture with your spouse? get inspiration from six apart!

If you are planning to start a new joint venture with your spouse don't forget to take a slice of inspiration from Mena Trott and Ben Trott in naming the new company. Co-founders of the popular software company SixApart Ltd, creators of Movable Type blogware, TypePad blog hosting service and Vox, have interesting reason behind naming their company as SixApart. The name was coined from the six days age difference between the married co-founders Mena and Ben. Ben during his unemployment period wrote a software for Mena to publish her weblog. That software's version 1.0 made available on internet received >100 downloads in the first hour motivated them to create the company SixApart, selling the popular blogware, Movable Type. Wish to check Mena's corner!

Sergey Brin (Aug, 1973) and Larry Page (March, 1973), Google co-founders were also six apart, not in days, but in months! just cherry picking the coincidences!
