It's always galling when you stumble by accident across great work being done by a group of your colleagues that you weren't previously aware of, especially when they all work within 100 yards of you.
I've just come back from a great talk about the Exploring Online Research Methods project. The website (all OER) has a vast amount of information and the project is expanding now via a blog and social network. The new content which is coming soon (e.g. use of blogs as research tools) also sounds fascinating, so keep your eye on the website.
I wish I'd known about this site earlier!
