Hello everyone,

Sor far I was a quite passive member of this great list, but hope 
this will change now.

I am a qualitative researcher utilising the Internet for empirical 
material collection. For my research I developed a research platform 
which is basicly a community platform offering blogs and fora to my 
participants. In my research I am exploring tourist's perceptions of 
climate change and how this influences their travel decisions and 
experiences. My participants to some degree already talked about this 
topic on their own travel blog or within a travel community which 
they are a member of. At this stage I just started some email 
interviews with first participants and will start the online 
discussions on my platform soon. As a qualitative online researcher I 
am fairly lonely in my department/shool(/university?) and would like 
to connect with other researchers who use a similar approch for their 
research. It would be great to exchange some experiences or receive 
some references if the research has been published.

Kind regards,
