If it wasn’t the very first, I’m sure it was among the first! Pardon the off-topic post, but I wanted to share some personal news that my Twitter friends already saw. I’m getting married! Actually, this news isn’t really that off-topic: if it wasn’t for Barb’s never-ending support, I wouldn’t be blogging or podcasting. She knows that my ultimate goal is to leave the full-time corporate world behind in favor of working on mobile tech writing, videos and podcasts. She’s rarely complained about my daily grind of working a full-time job and blogging part-time (OK, full time on some days!). In fact, she used to participate in a podcast with me that actually got us featured on the 11pm news here in Philly (16 MB WMV file) almost two years ago.

I’m very lucky since she’s an amazingly beautiful and intelligent person in her own right; what more could one ask for in a life partner? This will be a second marriage for each of us, so we may not be completely traditional. In fact, we started breaking tradition with a Palladium engagement ring (after the jump) since Barb has a degree in fashion design and has her own great sense of style. Instead of a solitaire diamond, we opted for something that fits her style every day: intricate design in the middle and diamond chips on the edges. Thanks for all of the warm wishes on Twitter and remember when you read a post by me here, you wouldn’t be able to read it if I didn’t have Barb’s support.
