Hi All,

I wanted to let you all know about two upcoming events that may be of 
interest. The Workshop in Algorithmic Computer Music at UCSC(6/23 -7/6) 
and the SanFran MusicTech Summit (2/25).

------

David Cope and the faculty at UC Santa Cruz are teaching their Workshop 
in Algorithmic Computer Music (WACM) this summer. David informed me that 
there are 6 slots open out of 15. I know that some of you will be 
interested in this:

More details:
The 2008 Workshop in Algorithmic Computer Music (WACM) will take place 
from June 23 through July 6 at the University of California, Santa Cruz. 
Students will learn the Lisp computer programming language and create 
their own composition and analysis software. The instruction team will 
be led by David Cope, noted composer, author, and programmer.

In a very different direction, some of you may be interested in the 
SanFran MusicTech summit which will be at Hotel Kabuki, Japan Town, SF, 
Monday Feb 25th:

In their words:
The SanFran MusicTech Summit will bring together the best and brightest 
developers in the Music/Technology Space, along with the musicians, 
entrepreneurial business people, and organizations who work with them at 
the convergence of culture and commerce. We will meet to discuss the 
evolving music/business/techn­ology ecosystem in a proactive, conducive 
to dealmaking environment.

Panelists are already confirmed from Yahoo, YouTube, MusicIP, Pandora, 
Jambase, Rhapsody, SomaFM, Sun Microsystems, Gracenote, Apple, iLike, 
Rhapsody, MP3Tunes, Eventful, SMTV, and more, invitations out to 
numerous marquee technologists, musicians, entrepreneurs, press, 
investors, and others.

Confirmed attendees from organizations such as Cisco, Google, Microsoft, 
Project Opus, SeeqPod, NPR, the American Federation of Musicians, 
VentureBeat, Revision3, Rolling Stone Online, Scripting News, 
Recombinant, Inc., DiscMakers, the Canadian Musical Reproduction Rights 
Agency, Kadoink, GETV, iMeem, The San Francisco Weekly, The Village 
Voice, and many more.

The SanFran MusicTech Summit will bring together digital thought leaders 
from the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as from all around the country 
to the region which currently leads the way in innovating (both 
socially, and technologically) new ways of interacting with both music, 
and musicians. We will be working long term to help enable a 
sustainable, ongoing, Northern California based music and related 
technology market.

All the best,
