“Blogging, it turns out, is the CB radio of the Dave Eggers generation,” wrote Rebecca Mead in The New Yorker in November, 2000. She goes on:
That crush, Ms. Mead revealed in her piece, was on uber-blogger Jason Kottke; later he would move to San Francisco from Minneapolis to be with her. Ms. Hourihan worked then in San Francisco for a company she co-founded called Pyra, which created Blogger, which was later bought by Google.
Later still, the couple would move to New York together.
Although the formerly loose-lipped couple have rarely blogged about it—Ms. Hourihan did announce the engagement last November—this first famous love affair of the blogging age will now be resolved in a happy ending. Meg Hourihan and Jason Kottke plan to marry in a civil ceremony this Saturday evening in Manhattan.
