Computer Minister Officiates At Wedding

A Texas couple threw tradition, and fears of a robots takeover, to the wind by having a virtual minister preside at their wedding on Saturday. Miguel Hanson and Diana Wesley met on the Sweet on Geeks dating site and Hanson is a web developer and IT consultant, so when they couldn't find a friend to officiate, Hanson decided it was only fitting to code a minister.

"Rev. Bit" isn't ordained of course, but the couple found there were other benefits to having him perform the ceremony. At one point Bit declared:

"If anyone here has anything to say that might change their minds or has any objections, they do not want to hear it and I will not recognize your objections since Miguel has programmed me to only recognize his commands."
