I might be able to if you want.  I have a Duemilanove and just started
working with it this week.  I put together one of the protoshields and have
interfaced successfully with a thermister, 2x16 LCD, and some magnetic
contacts (going to put them on my doors)...

I'm only just beginning so it would be a very basic demonstration.  I would
love to see what others have done, or discuss idea's that others plan to do,
so in addition to a presentation I think a show-and-tell would be fun.

I am flying out to HP on the 9th, but hope to be back that night, or the
morning of the 10th.  I should know first of next week.
