This is what it seems to me. The only regular venue for stuff like this
I know of in the whole US is ShareNYC, but I've never seen another PDer
there, though I heard H.C.Steiner has been around. Of course NYC is a
long shot if you live on the west coast, wheras from what I hear about
Europe, you can live in London and be in Berlin 20EUR and an hour later.
Hmmmm... anyone know of any jobs for a programmer with a specialty in
realtime media in Europe ;) ?
Europe has higher population density, plus I think there really are more
PDers in Europe. IEM is there. IRCAM is there.
