Abstract

In this paper I will present two Internet technologies, blogs and open source programming, which are being used by emerging Christian communities in their construction of identity, theology and society. I am in the preliminary stages of data collection for my PhD thesis, and so this paper addresses several methodological issues that are raised when conducting research on blogs. This paper reflects on the use emerging Christian communities are making of the Internet and argues for a participatory research methodology for the blogosphere.
