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.
