It occurred to me today that what I'd really like is a "World of Studio Artist" news and events feed, or since there is already a weblog for Synthetik which has product news (I think), perhaps all that is needed to get further on this is a Studio Artist user announcement channel. If a fellow SA artist in my region had a show, I'd really want to know about it as that would pop to the top of my art show priority list.
This could include advance announcement of events such as the Visual Music Marathon, new user presets available somewhere, or any other event or news (such as a book on Studio Artist) which is connected to Studio Artist in some way. It doesn't seem like there's too much stuff that this would be overwhelming. I know http://studioartist.blogspot.com/
has some items, but I'm thinking many of the items I might want to know about may not percolate to the top of the relevance heap to make it on http://studioartist.blogspot.com/
, or the blog author may be on vacation, etc. Usually the artist is the one who is most motivated to post announcements ahead of the event rather than afterwards.
One of the things that inhibits searching for such items on a site like Google News is the non-unique nature of the phrase "Studio Artist".
Maybe to keep the overhead low, there could just be a discussion here dedicated to announcements for future events.
