The Frylab thing died. It was a free-for-all that dominated by jam
band enthusiasts... oh well... but it would be great to get a regular
Pd thing going in NYC. I know a couple dedicated Pd users and a quite
a few off-and-on users, plus with the media arts programs in NYC, there
is a large potential pool. I just finished by Masters at ITP/NYU

We should start meeting at another regular event, like Share, then if
we get enough people, branch out on our own.
