As for JackPoint members... I'm thinking world wide since I know at least one member is up in orbit.
This. As far as I am aware a fair few of the Runners are based in Seattle (But that is probably just because of Seattles high SR count). Orbital DK is up the well, last time I checked Puck was hanging out in his Carib Legue home (That was before the Crash though), Slamm-O probably doesn't live in Seattle, he was visiting when he met up with Netcat (Who does seem to work/live in Seattle). Smiling Bandit might still be living as a hermit in the Rockies, Ma'Fan is based out of Hong Kong and Kane is a psycho out of the CAS in general I believe. And then we have 'Jack, who is a mystery to me (I suspect that with the time Jack has been running the Shadows he can afford to live whereever the hell he wants).
Edit: And they are all posting in JackPoint, a private Shadow Network maintained by Hacker Extraudinaire FastJack. Invitation only, stupidly hard to break into and possibly quite secret. Most of the people on the network seem to be Prime Runners who have a good bit of experience in the Shadows. Very give and take, you are expected to contribute to the general knowledge of the Network either by writing up your own info or via the wonders of paydata.
And if I remember right, Jack once commented on how he didnt want to have to take care of 56 (?) children. so that is possibly still about the general number of people in JackPoint. 56 is not that many for a worldwide network, so it is doubtful that a team that has not been running the Shadows for less than a good few years would have access to JackPoint. That is unless your GM says otherwise, GM wins when it comes to such things in my mind.
