Mark Jen Getting Hitched, Rather Than Separated, Which is Nice, Considering His History

MArk & Rose.jpg

Mark Jen, the most famous ex-Googlite, ex-Plaxo as of a few months ago, is getting married to Rose Kwok. Mark is part of the Lunch 2.0 conspiracy. (The next LA one is at in Burbank on October 12th.)

They’re blogging in tandem at RoseandSnail.

Jen, while not the first blogger to be fired for blogging, got canned by “forward thinking” Google for some specious reason, which led to his writing a company blogging policy at Plaxo.

While we wish the couple all the best, FBLA hopes they write a blogging pre-nup. Couldn’t hurt.
