An Announcement

On exceedingly rare occasions we divulge ever so little about our personal lives here on Calitics.  It’s what makes a community a community.  Plus I didn’t want anyone to send out the search parties.

So I will be away from blogging and the online world for the next week.  That’s because, in between posts over the last couple years, I met a wonderful girl, and we will be getting married in her hometown of Pittsburgh on Saturday.  Somehow she likes the chained-to-the-computer-and-occasionally-unresponsive type.  I don’t know.  But I’m pretty pleased about it, as I’m a lucky man.

After the wedding and a little “mini-moon” (a word I’ve coined for “shortened honeymoon,” how do you like it?), the wife and I will go back to Pittsburgh for the annual gathering, Netroots Nation. So seek me out there and say hello.  After all, you’ll be on my honeymoon!

By the way, I should again plug the panel discussion I’m running at Netroots Nation on Saturday, August 15 called “California: How Process Creates Crisis,” in room 317 at 3:00pm.  The panel features myself, Robert Cruickshank of Calitics and the Courage Campaign, Jean Ross of the California Budget Project and AD-21 legislative candidate Kai Stinchcombe.  I’ve created a Facebook event for the panel, and for more information visit the Netroots Nation event site.  If you’re heading to the convention, I hope you can make it.

And that’s it for me.

  1. Congratulations to you both. How you managed this between posts, I can’t imagine. Mazel tov!

  2. Yes, let me tell you, they all love the chained to the computer, occasionally unresponsive type. I’m pretty sure about that when my husband rips the cell phone away from me during dinner. 😉

    Congratulations again and see you in Pittsburgh!

  3. Congratulations to you and your soon-to-be bride – she is a fantastic woman.

    And yes, when we blogger types find a partner who is willing to put up with the long hours on the computer (and, increasingly, on the iPhone), marrying them is usually a good thing to do.

  4. Really happy for you, and I must say … Netroots Nation on your honeymoon?  That’s true blogger dedication right there …

  5. And, as I’ve met your very nice bride to be, I can say that I think you guys make a wonderful couple and I wish you both many many years of wedded bliss.  

  6. “Mini-moon” is a great term, enjoy yours!  Best wishes to the happy couple.

  7. Best wishes for the wedding this weekend and the adventure you’re about to embark upon.

  8. In advance.

    Funny, there will be two newlyweds on that panel.  Kai married Lilia last weekend.  They will literally flying back from their honeymoon to NN.
