Caterina Fake & Stewart Butterfield

CATEGORY: Power Couples
INDUSTRY: Technology

WHAT MAKES THEM HAUTE: Fake is an art director; Butterfield is a Web designer. The two of them are hailed as Web 2.0 geniuses, thanks to their photo-sharing site Flickr, which they launched in 2004 without a dime of investments from venture capitalists. Just 16 months later, Yahoo! wrote a check to the power couple to the tune of $30 million. More recently, gamers are holding their breaths in anticipation of Glitch, Butterfield’s collaboration for a new online game, and Fake launched, a site that will offer a recommendation to a dilemma after the user answers 10 questions or less. Is that haute? Yes.
