The concept of knowledge management (KM) and the enabling technologies for it have been around for many years. Emerged as a personal web publisher, blogging (blog, weblog) is gaining popularity as a KM tool. In this paper, how blogging could be used to support KM in construction industry are investigated and presented. Semantic blogging is an extension of conventional blogging. As semantic blogs are annotated with machine-understandable metadata, it can offer some advanced functions to manage knowledge. A semantic blogging site for construction organizations is proposed in the paper and its framework is presented. This semantic blogging framework was implemented into a collaborative KM system for construction industry. © 2008 Taylor & Francis Group.
