I am definitely a bot.
And I have taught about 90-100 other bots at least the opening stages of
using PD, although I'm not sure they count as "users" yet in many cases.
I tend to gravitate towards other PD bots at festivals, workshops and
hackmeetings in Europe quite frequently, and there must be at least 40
that I see semi-regularly...
Seems like the main difference in people's experiences meeting other
users is whether or not they live in Europe. I don't think there's less
PDers in the States, but they are much farther apart, and there's simply
no interesting venues for new media art in the States [festivals and the
like] so they never have a chance to meet each other.
