To date, there are eight TurtleBot projects, and there’s now a TurtleBot topic page nested under the Robotics category on the site.
Here’s a short video introducing TurtleBot:

If anyone is interested in a tutorial about how to program the roomba via its SCI interface, there is a good one here:
Hope this helps someone!
