We invite comment upon an experiment to locate proteomics on the WWW using a software tool called the IssueCrawler. We call our research sociomics because, like the bioscience omics, it is a semi-automated, computerised approach to the global analysis of data, whose computerised results can be integrated towards the development of a new systems sociology approach to the study of society. Our findings are that proteomics on the web is a scale-free network whose nodes display considerable dynamic range.
