If you (or anyone!) are interested in doing occasional pd workshops (we  
could to a series even.. people want to know as much as possible!),  
share ( is a good place actually..

We hold weekly jam sessions on sunday (for those who dont know), and  
have had occasional workshops (Lemur Demos, we have one to hand out to  
artists looking to experiment, we had an intro to jitter workshop which  
had a very large turnout..), as well as some audio DSP stuff for people  
looking for technical know how.

geoff, one of the authors of gDAM is getting in to PD as well.. might  
be a good place to either do some intro stuff, or more advanced topics.  
I was planning on doing a GEM workshop, since I am more of a visual  
artist (sic) and dont know enough DSP theory.

I know a bunch of people at share who ive gotten interested in Gem/PD,  
and would like a tutorial, I just dont think I know enough to give  
definitive answers.

youre always welcome to stop by and set something up! Unfortunately  
share lost its 'home' at openAir bar (new owners), and we are looking  
for a new permanent venue so we kind of wander form venue to venue for  

But we just received NYFA funding, so we will be trying to do  
bigger/better/more organized events (like our anyware event) and get a  
new home.

Anyway, hope to see some of you there :)
