I've updated this Meetup. For more details, see the full listing:

Utilize HTML5 APIs today in your JavaScript!

Tired of waiting on your users to request new information before they can get the latest updates?

Worse, tired of delivering the same stale content to users on refresh when you could save bandwidth by letting them know when new data is available?

Or maybe you just want your web app to update instantaneously when a new message, friend update, IM, or alert has been posted to their account rather than waiting for them to hit the refresh button.

Well, there's an API for that and it's called Websockets, full-duplex communications coming to a browser near you! The real-time web is here, and it's ready today!

Demo? Checkout and watch the real-time lightweight goodness!

And oh ya, we're going to be covering watching your users every move down to the second and meter (if they have a GPS enabled device) and having your users be okay with it! This one's going to be good. Trust me. =)
