Status update: Facebook’s first president walks down the aisle

CO-FOUNDER of Napster and Facebook’s first president Sean Parker got married in California on Saturday.

The wealthy web entrepreneur married singer Alexandra Lenas and guests wore “whimsical” outfits designed by Ngila Dickson who created costumes for the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Maybe the tech entrepreneur is honeymooning somewhere remote as he hasn’t yet updated his Facebook page to reflect his vows – it stills shows his relationship status as “engaged.”

Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke may have the hefty weight of the US economy on his shoulders, but it seems he hasn’t lost his sense of humour. Speaking to Princeton University graduates yesterday he joked that even he couldn’t meet the university’s high standards. “I wrote recently to inquire about the status of my leave from the university, and the letter I got back began, ‘Regrettably, Princeton receives many more qualified applicants for faculty positions than we can accommodate,’” he said. “Note to journalists: This is a joke,” he added.
