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  
( ), there are about 220 students there (more than  
half women, I should say), and Max/MSP/Jitter is popular.  Proce55ing  
has almost completely replaced Director/Flash there, I figure Pd is  

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

Using ReBirth is like trying to play an 808 with a long stick.
