Leadership transition

From: Drew C.

Good morning everyone.

First, I'd like to thank everyone who came out to the meetup last night, and a special thanks to JJ, Yihui, and Jeff for their fantastic presentations.  The tool chain that was described for making dynamic documents in R was really spectacular, and I am working with the presenters to get copies of their slides posted to the meetup page soon.

The main reason I am writing, however, is to announce to those of you that were not at last night's meetup -- or did not stick around to the end -- that I am stepping down as the organizer.  I can't believe that it has been nearly three years for me, but the time has come for me to step aside and let others inject new energy and ideas into the meetup.

I would like to thank Jared Lander and Wes McKinney for stepping up to become to the new organizers of the group.  The diversity of expertise and combined experience within the statistical computing community they bring will undoubtedly launch the meetup to new heights.  Please join me in congratulating them and wishing them luck on this new venture, though preferably not as a replay-all :)
