How far are we past the age of tiny websites making it big?

There's obviously sites like D*scord which didn't exist 8 years ago, but most of the WWW is in the hands of corporations that I feel you can't organically make it big as an indie site owner. Thoughts..?

It looks like some lucky websites will become a viral sensation for a bit, but otherwise it looks like it’s impossible to break in to the mainstream with a new site.

I feel like we've almost looped back to the point where small communities (local organizations, workplaces, hobby groups) can do extremely well by promoting new websites/software within their own communities.

Good luck with taking off, though, without someone somewhere spending money on you, whether you're getting advertising or capital for better products.

a site doesn't need to be good, I'd wager population has an inverse relationship with quality/originality
I personally enjoy small communities where I can keep up and make my little contributions here and there (゚ー`)
