I am delighted to report to you that after some not-so-discreet inquiries, I now have an able successor. Please give a warm welcome to kathny, who is already well-known to the regular NYC meetup attendees. She is organizing her first meetup for us, and she will be taking over for me. You should expect to see diaries from her announcing upcoming NYC-area meetups, and if you are on the email list, you'll be getting emails from her. If you follow me in order to get information about upcoming meetups, follow her too!!!!
I will still be a happy guest at our meetups, and look forward to seeing you all at them. I am hoping, too, that this change will afford me enough free time to write some diaries on other subjects that are also important to me, like the upcoming midterm elections (have I got a State Senate candidate for you!).
See you all at the next meetup!
