FYI: JUG-USA is hibernating until fall of 2010

You must have noticed by now that nothing is going on with this
JUG-USA meetup group. With myself as the primary driver for this
endeavor, I needed to put this on hold temporarily as I focused on a
much broader community leadership initiative called the Community
Leadership Summit (CLS):


I attended the first ever international CLS gathering the weekend
before OSCON last summer in San Jose, California. I was so inspired by
the event that I organized a regional CLS event for the area where I
live called the West Coast Community Leadership Summit (CLS West) that
was held about two months ago on January 9th, 2010. We are currently
establishing monthly gatherings for community leaders in the San
Francisco Bay Area that are called CLS West First Fridays. The next
one is coming up on April 2nd in the East Bay:


On top of all that, I have been asked to help organize the annual
international CLS gathering that will be this July in Portland on the
weekend before this year's OSCON. Long story short, I simply do not
have time to move this JUG-USA initiative forward at the moment.
However, I will be picking it back up again this fall. By then, the
big CLS event this summer will be over and CLS West should be running
smoothly too.

With the acquisition of Sun by Oracle finally over, I have started
discussions with community outreach folks at Oracle about how JUG-USA
might play a part in Oracle's involvement with the Java community in
the United States going forward. At a minimum, we will plan something
akin to CLS for Java Community Leaders to get together prior to
JavaOne this fall. Check back with this meetup group later this year
for more details about that.

That's All Folks, Van
