Married Couples Speaking at WordCamp

When Jonathan and I were both selected to speak at WordCamp Miami, we were asked if we were the first married couple to speak at a WordCamp. I tried to confirm or deny it ahead of time, but didn’t have any luck. So, relying on the power of the internet I posted the claim on Twitter.

As expected, our claim was disputed within minutes.

And by the end of the day we had gone back to 2009.

And our list may continue to grow. So I am proud to reveal the unofficial registry.
