Billing itself as the place for "large data sets and the people who love them: the scrapers and crawlers who collect them, the academics and geeks who process them, the designers and artists who visualize them," (theinfo) is an excellent resource for those curious - and experienced - about meaningfully engaging the vast volumes of content that comes with an online world.

Whether your focus is on content/data acquisition, analysis, or representation, there are mailing lists, data sets (or visualizations), and experienced advice available. (theinfo) is crowd-sourced - while the community appears small now, the potential exists for this to become a fantastic resource.
