[PD] finding funding to the PdCon09

Hey all,

Since the PdCon09 in São Paulo is coming up this summer, I thought I'd  
start a thread on finding ways to get funds to get as many people  
there are possible.  For example, I plan on applying to the Jerome  
Foundation for a travel grant, it only applies to New York City and  
Minnesota: http://www.jeromefdn.org/.

I think the Europeans and Canadians have much better options.  Anyone  
know of other options for Americans? Or anyone think I could use my  
Austrian citizenship to get a travel grant from the Austrian gov't?

I know the Brazil crew is working to fund as many people as possible,  
like they did in Montreal, but there is never enough grant money to  
pay all the expenses, so helping each other get grants from other  
sources will definitely help the whole effort.

I was also thinking, perhaps we could stick a "Donate" nag screen on  
the next release of Pd-extended, with all of the donations going  
directly to the PdCon09.



Looking at things from a more basic level, you can come up with a more  
direct solution... It may sound small in theory, but it in practice,  
it can change entire economies.     - Amy Smith
