While some repositories are focused on data, the myExperiment project has demonstrated the value in sharing the methods that are used to process that data - sharing know-how and building new capabilities through the community. Evolving usage of the website provides glimpses of the future behaviour of researchers and an exploration of what researchers might be sharing in the future instead of papers. This exploration of social sharing and ad hoc reuse has taken the project into the world of scholarly research objects, linked data and what might be described as "Linked Open Methods". We now see researchers beginning to share new methods that operate at this next level of research.
