Get the latest information on upcoming SuperCollider meetings in the Bay Area: subscribe to our local SC users mailing list! If you are organizing any SuperCollider-related event in the Bay Area, feel free to join and post to this list. The goal is to connect as many people locally as possible. Recent meetings have been happening at CCRMA (Stanford University), but it would be great to have other events in San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose...
