PHUG at http://phug.ca is an open source community group based out of Toronto and guided by Brendan Sera-Shriar. Brendan and folks are very passionate about the open source community and provide workshops, contests, organize conferences, etc. to help the cause. Please have a look at their site and subscribe to their RSS.
Professor Dan Zen of Sheridan’s Interactive Multimedia Program in Oakville, Ontario, Canada presented a double presentation on Chat for Designers and Animating to Sound Frequencies or Waves in Flash. The PHUG post can be read here: http://phug.ca/index.php/flash-media-server-and-beatmaker-workshop/
Dan Zen would like to thank the 40 odd people who came out, many of whom chatted afterwards to help share knowledge of stories they are working on, VJ tools, etc. They were a very warm and welcoming crowd.
