    "The Hubpages team is founded by three guys out of Microsoft that were part of the successful startup MongoMusic. The team includes Paul Edmondson, Jay Reitz, and Paul Deeds. Most recently, Paul Edmondson was the Group Product Manager for MSN Entertainment, Jay Reitz was the Development Manager, and Paul Deeds was a developer in Windows Media Internet Services."

      "While we don't disclose individual earnings. A few people became very sophisticated at creating highly targeted niche content and earning a few thousand dollars per month. When we built HubPages, we guessed that it would be a small number of people that would drive most of the traffic."

    As much as its fun to knock Microsoft, I hear that they're actually a fantastic company to work for, and I'm not ONLY talking about the money.

    It's no secret. I think I knew before I signed up by either reading an article or a hub they published themselves.
