I've reworked the news streams a bit. The service I was using before, Delicious, wasn't very reliable and took a long time to update. I've found another way of doing the same thing which updates much faster but has a limit of 10 articles. To work round that, I've decided to do multiple streams segregated by topic rather than a single meta-collection as before.
Feedback is welcome.
If anyone wants to create a similar article list or lists on other relevant topics for inclusion on the site let me know, perhaps on a per country or per language basis (non-English languages), and I will explain to you what you need to do. Essentially, you just press a button on your browser to auto-save an article you are reading to the list. So it's relatively effort-free.
