Expression of Interest: Brisbane LessWrong Meetup

The new Canberra meetup has spurred me on to think about creating a Brisbane, Australia meetup for LessWrong. I would have posted this in the open thread, but this is significantly more likely to be seen by any potential attendees.

This post is obviously to see who, if anyone, would be wanting to attend a LessWrong meetup if one was to be started in Brisbane. I'm also curious to see how many LessWrongers also attend things like Brisbane Skeptics in the Pub (at the Plough Inn) or are members of UQ Skeptics etc (and if those people would be interested in a dedicated LW meetup nonetheless).

Comment away, Brisbane-ites!

EDIT: People of now, I'm not making any assumptions about upvotes so please comment if you're interested. Those of you who are upvoting anyway, thanks.

EDIT 2: People of the distant future, feel free to comment however old this post is when you stumble upon it.

Hi, I'm in Brisbane and potentially interested. Not a lot of free time at the moment though (finishing off PhD). I've been to Skeptics in the Pub, but haven't had time to go recently. I think I'm a member of UQ Skeptics on Facebook.
