Rewrite this to make definite statements instead of tentative offers (see Less Wrong NYC) and I'll promote it.

I've changed it so:

1.) I'm now stating it will definitely happen instead of suggesting it. If need be I'll just turn up and see if anyone else comes along.

2.) I've made the time definite.

I haven't made the topic for discussion definite. I haven't been to a meetup before and so don't know what works well. If no-one chips in with anything then closer to the time I'll decide on a subject or structured activity but I don't really know what would work so am not willing to do so at this stage.

Feel free to promote it or not based on that depending on what you think suits the LW community.

I'd love to come to this sort of thing, but I live in Sydney (Australia!). Is anyone aware of anything similar happening in Sydney, or could someone suggest where I could go to continue my search to find these kind of meet ups?

I know nothing about this group but a recent comment mentioned a Sydney meetup: http://lesswrong.com/lw/4ul/less_wrong_nyc_case_study_of_a_successful/3plf
