    A good night. James' talk led to a lot of discussion. Yoong's calendar was very worthwhile and Tim's auto backup was very helpful. I like the idea of lightning talks. Thanks all.

    I don't know if this is the right place, but here's my idea for a JUG meeting.

    Peter did a great seo presentation last year, we got a good turn out and it seems to be a pretty popular. So why don't we have it again?
    However I would also like to see things relating to Google semantic search, Google local and G+.
    I'm happy to tag team.

      Feel free to add to the Sydney JUG topic discussion at­
      We will look at both SEO and social media tools at some point this year (feel free to get in touch if you'd like to volunteer to present on these or any other topics).
