I’ve only just found out about researchGATE.


It’s a social networking site for researchers. I can’t find that much information about it; I think it was only released earlier this year. I really like the idea of something like this, it’s a great way to talk to people in the field and initiate collaborations. However, I worry that it may become (or already be) specialised toward certain disciplines though, e.g. bio-append-buzzword-here-stuff, or whatever seems to be the latest hot topic. Perhaps I’ll join anyway though, seeing as the net already owns my soul 🙂

    Do you know Joe Fitzsimons (Quantized Thoughts)? He just started something like that called Social Notebook. It’s in beta testing, but I signed up and hopefully some others will as well. I think it’s a great idea.

  2. – give me a lookup once you’ve logged in!

  3. Glad you guys like it. As I’ve mentioned on my blog, if anyone wants a n invitation, just drop me an email, or leave a comment on the blog.
