The parents of everyone in the Mac community are proud to announce that all their sons and daughters are engaged to Ars Technica’s John Siracusa.
“I really got the sense they loved my review and, consequently, me,” Siracusa said. “So, we had a little dinner, went to a movie, one thing led to another and…
“Now we’re getting married!”
For its part, the Mac community expressed its undying love for Siracusa and his reviews, as forum posts and blog comments overflowed with remarks such as “You know his reviews are good because they’re so long!” and “He must be smart because I have no idea what he’s talking about!”
It was the review that nurtured a love that defied social norms.
While many were at a loss to explain how the engagement of a technology writer and an entire community could come about, one person thought he had the answer.
“This really just kind of snowballed,” said a sheepish Phil Schiller.
“I just got sick of everyone going on and on about how much they looooved Siracusa’s Leopard review – which in many parts was quite critical of Leopard – and what a literary god Siracusa is and Siracusa, Siracusa, Siracusa! So, I said to the Mac community, ‘Well, if you love him so much, why don’t you marry him?!’
“And, um, here we are.”
The wedding date is set for January 15, 2008. The Mac community will wear white and Guy Kawasaki will give the bride away.
