Thanks Jason. Like you, I think the lunchtime group is valuable and it's a weight off my mind to know that someone will pick this up. I'll contact you directly to arrange to meet up.

If anyone else is interested in helping Jason, please let us know and we'll try to get all interested parties together before the next meetup.

Hi Craig and JVMers,

I am interested in organising this meetup group in Brisbane. I think it's a valuable session, and would be a shame for it to be disbanded. Thanks so much for you work in helping it thrive until now.

I work for Red Hat in Brisbane, and know of a few people in our office I could convince to do a talk for the group if it was more conveniently  located for us. I think we would be able to host the meetup in our office near Roma St occasionally, as long as it was agreeable for the rest of the group.

I really like the idea of co-hosting the group with other members, so that we could cast our net wider, and find more people interested in participating. I would appreciate meeting with you Craig, and any others to discuss a plan for hosting the group.

Additionally, I would like to offer a talk on the Apache messaging project, ActiveMQ, at the March meetup. I'll check with our office manager, but we might be able inaugurate the Red Hat office as a venue for the talk.

Having been an organizer of the Brisbane lunchtime meetup for a few years now, I've decided the time has come for me to stand down and let someone else have a go. The main reason is that I'm now based mostly on the Gold Coast for work, so lunchtime meetups in Brisbane are difficult for me to commit to, but I also think that new leadership will inject new life to the group as well.

If you are interested in taking over the group, please reply to the list or e-mail me directly. Ideally we'll get a few volunteers that can form a team and share the burden.

We also don't have a speaker for the March meetup in a couple of weeks. If you something you want to share with the group, please let me know.
