In case you were not at the last meeting, I figured I would describe the plan David has for the 1/8 meeting.
BEFORE THE MEETING - ASAP
Everyone will pick a tutorial that interests them from the list at http://learn.adafruit.com/category/learn-arduino
Then, buy the necessary parts, and follow the steps to get your project running.
AT THE MEETING
your project and be prepared to show it to the group. If it was

This should also lead to some good group discussions about the projects.
If you don't have a project to show, come to the meeting anyway to see what everyone has built and learn from the discussion.
