Google Blogoscoped

Wednesday, August 9, 2006

Planet Google aggregates lots of Google-related information all on one page. Piotr Konieczny, a Polish IT journalist, created the site to track Google for a book on internet searching he’s currently writing*. Piotr explains, “I’m checking RSS feeds from selected sources and parsing it against defined words (google, gmail, Picasa, etc. in this case). If the keyword is present in a particular message, the message is then placed on the site.” (And some sources, like Google’s official blogs, are placed on the site even without target keywords present.)

*The Polish title will be “Zaawansowane metody wyszukiwania informacji w sieci”. Piotr explains the book “is mainly focused (80%) on using not obvious features of Google’s tools and services to make one’s Internet research more efficient and powerful, but it also touches [on other] (non-google based) effective techniques of finding information.” You can expect the book to be published later this year.
