RE: [softwaredev-110] [NYC Hadoop meetup] Stepping down as Organzier and nomination of new Organizer

Contextweb and Cloudera continue to fully support the NYC Hadoop meet-up
and community with finance, time, organization, and space commitments.
We thank Alex Dorman for all of his efforts in getting this off the
ground and fully expect to see his smiling face at many future events.
Alex remains good friends with the Contextweb and Cloudera teams.

Alex Rovner and Eric Sammer will carry the torch forward from here.
Things are in good hands.

Best,
Dave
Head Geek Contextweb
