Believe it or not, there is news that is even cooler than the free content and expression definition. The news is that after knowing each other and dating for something like 7 or 8 years — on and off but mostly on — Mika and I are going to be getting married. Here’s a picture of the two of us at a picnic last weekend:
If you read my blog, you’ve probably seen my frequent links to hers. If you hung out with me in Seattle, Boston, or New York, in the last 3 years or have ever visited The Acetarium, you probably already know her.
We’ve told our families and many of close friends and will going ahead with a wedding and parties in the coming months. At the very least, we’ll be having parties in Cambridge (Massachusetts) and in Seattle. Neither of us are particularly traditional and I don’t imagine we’ll make a very traditional married couple. But we are crazy about each other and in it for the long haul. And that’s what counts.
The only bad news it that it means that I won’t be making Debconf this year — for the first time in four years. With a little bit of luck I’ll be back (perhaps with Mika who attended Debconf 4) next year.
