BlogScholar is an academic blogging portal started in 2005 as part of a PhD research project by Dr Chris Brauer at Goldsmiths, University of London. What started as a one man project now has an entire research unit in the Centre for Creative & Social Technologies (CAST) working on the next version of the site. The first version of the site was a popular directory containing more than 800 academic blogs. The next version of the site will work in the spirit of social interactivity driving Web 2.0 and beyond.
In the meantime why not check out some of our other initiatives in Online Journalism, Digital Sociology, and Creating Social Media. Chris is also Project Director at creative consultancy Smoothmedia and Director of Creative Industry investments for London-based investment bank Clarity Capital.
