Orlando Meetup: Yes or no?

The meetups as posted over on Meetup.com ( here http://www.meetup.com/Orlando-Drupal/ ) seem to have fizzled out. I admit that I've not been consistent in attending, but it seems a shame for it to die out.

If anyone is interested, I could work on arranging meeting space, probably at ScribbleSpace in West Orange: http://www.scribblespace.co/en . I have a membership there and work there 8 hours each week, and my membership includes meeting room space, which I'm happy to use for the group if anyone else is interested.
