Here (http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/1011/1011.5985v1.pdf) is an interesting paper - On the Kinematics of the Local Cosmic Void, by O.G.Nasonova and I.D.Karachentsev.

This is not a paper that really lays out all of the details we'll ever want to know, but shows us a start at something that probably needs a lot of examination for us to understand how our universe got to be the way it is, and perhaps also the relationship between voids and dark energy.

I'm looking forward to more work on this subject with the better resources that are coming on-line in the next decade or so (SKA, TMT, JWST, etc).
