Jaap Suter released a new Geometric Algebra Primer on his web site. Available in PDF and PS format, this 64-page document offers an introduction to geometric algebra, complete with examples relevant for computer graphics. Here's a snippet from the site:

"Geometric algebra is a new way of dealing with geometrical concepts and relations. It is based on Clifford algebra and has already been adopted with great enthusiasm in physics. Its elegance and ease of use is unparalleled. By introducing two simple concepts, the multivector and its geometric product, we obtain an algebra that allows subspace arithmetic. It turns out that being able to 'calculate' with subspaces is extremely powerful, and solves many of the hacks required by traditional methods. This paper provides an introduction to geometric algebra. The intention is to give the reader an understanding of the basic concepts, so advanced material becomes more accessible."
