Planet IITR Update ⚓13 Mar 2012
So, I was just going through my old blog posts, and saw the Planet IITR Update, which I created out of a need for people to be able to find blogs from other people in IITR.
Since no one has ever submitted a single link to the planet , I just thought, why shouldn’t I just crawl all my Facebook friends from IIT-R, and check their website URLs. The Facebook part took ~20 minutes (getting list of users from my 2 friendlists, followed by getting the website url for each of those friends). After that came the link checking part, which tool ~15-20 minutes as well. A list of all the websites (very few people fill up that that field on fb) I found during the search is here (just 39).

In case you were wondering what this planet stuff is all about, it allows one to add a single curated feed to one’s feed reader and get all updates via that. So planet iitr is a curated collection of blogs pertaining to IIT-R.
