Sorry I'm late (sick, work, travelling, blah) but here are the slides to my presentation if anyone was interested.
In particular caniuse.com and the aforementioned html5rocks are good bullet point resources for starters and keep an open mind!

We still need speakers! Please email me if you want to talk: justin AT bitovi. To try to convince you, I'll employ Robert Cialdini's 6 key principles of persuasion (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ro...):
Why you should talk:
- (reciprocity) I'm talking at this meetup. If you talk at this meetup, I'll also give you some sweet Bitovi or CanJS stickers. Wait what!
- (commitment) It was my idea for this meetup, so I'd like it to be a success.
- (social) Speaking is the path to becoming an expert, everyone's doing it.
- (authority) The meetup organizers request it of you. Comply!
- (liking) I'm friendly and bathe regularly.
- (scarcity) There's little time remaining before the meetup to sign up.

Please email me if you'd like to speak. This is a great opportunity for some fresh faces to get a speaking opportunity or an excuse to experiment with the latest JS/HTML technology.
I'd like people to leave the meetup feeling "caught-up" on the state of the web. A lot of my development patterns were hardened in the IE6 days. I want to know what is available to me today or in the near future.
An example of an awesome 10 min talk would be:
Web Workers: show the API, what it's used for, talk about which browsers support it, and the pros and cons of using it.
Email me at justin AT bitovi or message me through meetup. Thanks!
