| Inspired by scholar.google.com, I have started scholar.india.com where I will provide abstracts of research papers published in scholarly and semi-scholarly publications. The purpose is to provide exposure to research that is not available online (or not available easily).|
To start with, I have listed some papers that documented the tribals of Andaman Island.
See: Last of the Savages. Lost Forever.
I am using Blogger to create scholar.india.com, and I am pleasently surprised by the nice user-interface. I terribly miss the Content Management features of my SimplyBlog -- which by the way is now available with many bugs fixed.
The best part though, is I get RSS/XML feeds and commenting out of the box by using Blogger. No more Frankenstein templates.
I have forgotten how or who, but there was one customer who had married Blogger interface to SimplyBlog CMS interface. I need that, so I can simply write SQL and see them rendered on the Blog. For instance, to list all the references on Andaman, I'd write a query (something like)
Select * from Abstracts where Title
Contains 'Andaman' or Abstract Contains 'Andaman'

creating your own start page beats all portals, back-flipping,
personalized corporate pages, and book-marking tools.
