As Mike Merrill is already a man of the Digital Cloth, ordained as a minister in the Universal Life Church, shareholders M. Ritchey and A. Peterson have asked Mike Merrill to officiate their wedding.
Merrill has a long (non-romantic) history with Ritchey going back to his arrival in Portland, OR in 1998. Merrill and Ritchey have worked together on a number of projects including a rock opera about a giant killer robot and the now defunct e-Webulus. While the history with Peterson does not extend as far into the past it has also been full of many projects, including the fondly remembered The Associates Club and the never-launched Ashworth Media Properties.
While Ritchey and Peterson hold only small stakes in KmikeyM.com it is thought that this proposal will spur them to achieve a position more in line with their importance in Merrill's life.
