There are scores of eligible Google millionaires, but as of next month, both its famed billionaire founders appear to be taken.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, co-founder Larry Page will marry his girlfriend, Lucinda Southworth, at an undisclosed location during the weekend of December 8.

Guests have been advised to have their passports available to travel internationally, the newspaper said.

Not worth the paper its written on (she will reveal every single private detail and lie till he succumbs :)). I hope he put aside $200 million as an ex-wife payment, but then Bill Gates met his match so you never know. There is probably a deeper connection:
"Since 2003, Southworth has been a doctoral student in biomedical informatics at Stanford University. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2001 and holds a master's of science from Oxford University."

Now all she needs is a Law Degree from Harvard and she is all set.

Like what? Sticks and stones. He's a billionairre, do you think he's bothered if she tells the world he <edited>?

Short of some real blackmail information, tax fraud would be a good one, there's nothing that would bother me into coughing up hundreds of millions.

Dabrowski,
my poitn was: one way or another he will pay, if it comes to that. It's better to give 0.x% of your fortune than have the world read about this and that.

What do you mean? She's marrying a Googlaire- she's already set!

And of course, best wishes to both!

Are we going to see a different Google logo on the wedding day to mark the occassion?

>>> Different logo on Google to celebrate the wedding?<<<

How about interlocking the two OOs together and scattering some rose buds and flower petals around!...KF

"Since 2003, Southworth has been a doctoral student in biomedical informatics at Stanford University. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2001 and holds a master's of science from Oxford University."

And she is very good looking :)

Congrats to the soon to be Mr & Mrs Larry Page, wishing you a long happy marriage.

I was being sarcastic with the Harvard comment. And, wow she is beautiful as well. Very hard to get the brain + beauty in one :)

Did you notice that the two uber-nerds of the century,(Gates and Page) opted for brains over boobs?!

I guess that's the difference between them and me.

I was always interested in a tall cold one and a hot tall one...KF

When I saw the title I wondered what a "Larry" page was. Some sort of new Google tool?

To Larry Page, if you ever venture to WebmasterWorld:

I wish you and your betrothed a lifetime of happiness and trust that your phenomenal duties at Google will not get in the way of a happy family.

Not only is she smart, she is very pretty too.

Larry Page scores! Good work.

Hope they have a long happy life together.

It's good to have someone to have fun with. And Larry is having a lot of fun, so this is especially important for him.

She is, indeed, very attractive. Very pretty gets pretty boring (believe it or not) pretty quick, but, as Freud is said to have said, there is no practical use for beauty, but without it life is not worth living.

Yup, the wedding will take place in my tiny part of the world. They are getting married at (Richard Branson's) Necker Island Resort in the British Virgin Islands. That should cause some commotion down my way! :)

See [cnbc.com ]

Maybe my friend (who owns a plane) will fly me over to get some photos! :)

Apparently the Secret Service was here checking out security at the airport and possible security problems on Necker Island itself. Rumours abound that Bill and Hillary are coming.

OK ... so lots of activity around the islands now!

Richard Branson (owner of Necker Island) is reportedly the best man and U2 will be the band. Huge air conditioned tents (which look like permanent buildings) have been erected on the island to shelter guests from wind and rain.

The rumours that Bill and Hillary as well as many celebs and disgustingly wealthy folks are being flown in from all over the world. A total of 600 guests will attend. Security is tightening up and there are security cameras all over the place.

One local blogger (with photos of the activity on Necker Island) has been asked to take her photos down in the interest of privacy. Good luck!

Liane, time to buy a telephoto lens and make some serious tabloid cash.

I have a telephoto lens AND a friend with a plane. However, the huge air conditioned tents are likely where everyone will be, so it's unlikely I would get any decent shots even if I were so inclined.

Interesting thread about it (the wedding) on our local travel forum [traveltalkonline.com]

The plastic palm trees on the beach are really funny to see! Not exactly what I would have expected of a resort the stature of Necker Island. Pretty tacky if you ask me!

I kind of feel sorry for Larry. There is no way he and his bride will be given any privacy. You can run to the furthest corners of the earth (which the British Virgin Islands pretty much are) ... but there will be no escaping the paparazzi.

Every boater in the area is probably going to mosey on over to the North Sound later today to do a bit of rubbernecking.

Me ... I'm staying home and doing my bit to give them the privacy they deserve on their "special day". I hope all goes well.

As someone who admires Larry Page and wishes him the best, I sincerely thank you for that Liane. ;)

If Larry Page wants to avoid the spotlight, getting married on a private island and flying in 600 guests while having Richard Branson be your best man is not the way to go about it.

Hubris, you will always have a role to play...
