Recently I set up a new Planet aimed at acousticians called Planet Acoustics. A Planet is basically a feed reader; it downloads news feeds published by web sites and aggregates their content together into a single combined feed. The purpose of this Planet is to collect blogs and news by and for acousticians.
Planets are very popular in the open-source software development world. Planets like Planet KDE, Planet Debian, Planet Python and Planet SciPy syndicate posts from many people all over the world who write posts related to respectively KDE, the Debian project, Python programming language and the Python module SciPy.
The posts on such a Planet give a good overview of which efforts are currently taking place. Contrary to news posts, press releases or journal articles they are informal. People write about their current work, problems they face, events they attend and often share nice tips and tricks or even detailed tutorials.
I hope that Planet Acoustics will become a Planet with many nice posts regarding acoustics and the life of acousticians. If you would like to have your posts syndicated, then please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and a link to your Atom or RSS feed. Hopefully, in time, Planet Acoustics will become just as successfull as those Planets I referred to :-)
