Manhattan Producers Alliance

        The Manhattan Producers Alliance is a media education, professional mentoring and networking community comprised of Oscar, Grammy, Tony and Emmy award-winning musicians, which is dedicated to advancing the art of music composition, performance and recording. With the help and support of its members, ManhatPro creates unique professional development trainings for the music industry, as well as educational music/music technology initiatives for kids K-12.     The MADE is a new museum based in Oakland that showcases all things Videogame - from the early days of Atari and Street Fighter to current offerings including 3D games and MMOGs.  The museum is also offering programming classes for the next generation of would-be game designers, from its offices in downtown Oakland.  In my guise as Leapfrog Audio guy, this is of course something of curious interest to me.
