Network and Concept Maps for the Blogosphere

Axel Bruns, Lars Kirchhoff, Thomas Nicolai, Jason A. Wilson, Barry J. Saunders & Timothy J. Highfield

abstract While qualitative evidence for the networked patterns of discussion, debate, and deliberation in the blogosphere is readily available, it is more difficult to establish a solid quantitative picture of blog-based topical discussion networks and their cluster patterns. Large numbers of blogs (and individual blog posts, links, and comments) are likely to be involved in a quantitative study of blog-based discussion patterns. Hence, automated data collection and analysis is necessary.
