When you call yourself TheSoftwareJedi, there's only so far you can fall.
One such computer programmer, Dana Hanna of Abingdon, Md., halted his wedding ceremony so he could update his Facebook relationship status via BlackBerry, says Valleywag. Yes, before he kissed the bride. You might say he swapped one kind of PDA for another -- except we can't blame someone called TheSoftwareJedi for wanting to share that a pretty girl actually like-liked him.
He then Tweeted:
Standing at the altar with @TracyPage where just a second ago, she became my wife! Gotta go, time to kiss my bride. #weddingday
Does anyone know if there's a hashtag for wedding night advice for software programmers who are 'Star Wars' fans (not that they're ever mutually exclusive)? Maybe try #20sided_dice?
Seems the bride was in on the spectacle -- the groom tossed her Blackberry to her at the altar, because there's just no room in those Princess Leia gold bikinis for bulky social networking devices.
The poor, despondent Internets were then subjected to a bit of live-blogging from the honeymoon suite. Consider this message, Tweeted approximately seven hours later:
Hopping in the jacuzzi tub. TMI?
Yes, Dana. It's all TMI. And while we're at it, we don't want or need to know about the actual consummation of the marriage.
Now excuse us while we go Tweet about how hard we're weeping for the future of society.
