A while ago I wrote aboutusing the public collaborative bookmarking / tagging system del.icio.us to manage links for a team. We're still using it in the Software Development Services team where I sit, it's at least a good way to keep up with the kinds of things others are finding useful.
As we start out on the RUBRIC project at USQ, Deidre Lowe (Project Manager) and I (RUBRIC Techical Manager) have started using del.icio.us to track bookmarks, keep each other informed about what we're looking at, and start to build a library of resources.
To look at everyone's del.icio.us bookmarks for destrubric go to http://del.icio.us/tag/destrubric.
To see just mine, you would look at http://del.icio.us/ptsefton/destrubric.
To look for conferences we're interested in attending or at least investigating:http://del.icio.us/tag/destrubric+conferences.
And don't forget that all del.icio.us pages have RSS feeds. RSS is a notification system that will alert you of new stuff. If you don't know about RSS a good place to start is http://bloglines.com sign up for a free account and you can use it to track RSS and Atom feeds, meaning you can keep track of many many websites without visiting them.
