here in vienna (which is quite close to graz compared to montreal) i 
personally know about 10-15 people working with pd - most of them are 
anyway on the list - and about the same amount of people working with 
max/msp. on the other hand we gave a university course about pd+gem 
with about 25 participants (and another department does one on 
electroaccoustic music with about the same (amount of) people) + i gave 
a course on digital art where i referred to pd quite often and had 
about 80 participants. i personally know people working with pd in 
stockholm, oslo, iceland, ljubljana, berlin, salzburg, (and i did not 
count developers now) ...

what i want to say: there have to be thousands of users.

actually we do even have some women in the courses but those students 
who stay with pd for a longer time are mostly men. we got about 15% 
women in the media informatics curriculum.
