She said yes!

Having gotten through the trivial detail of launching Google+ (!), I recently turned my attention to even more important matters...

In the beautiful Parisian dusk, dining under the stars at Lasserre, I popped the question... and +Irene Au agreed to marry me!

+Irene Au, I love you with all my heart and cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with you...
