I'm not in NYC these days, but may be moving there in May. They do video 
stuff too at Share. And I know there's some folks that go to Frylab on 
one of the westside piers.
I went once, but wasn't too interested. I've heard there's also some 
occasional Pd-ish stuff going on at SubTonic, but that's more 
performance than meet and talk. For meet and talk there's some NYC Audio 
Artist's group a friend of mine is part of. If that interests you I 
could send you his email offlist.

But there is a definite shortage. If I move to NYC I'd like to start a 
venue for this kind of performance. Maybe more primetime than sunday 
night. Keep an eye on the list.
