Google's next coupe
[ ] Follow this story
Imagine ... you're reading a story of interest to you and at the bottom of the page, inserted by Google, is a checkbox you can check to indicate you want to follow this story.
Then, each day when you read the "news" online, you've got another link to click, which leads to a webpage constructed by Google that shows each of the stories you've elected to follow and links to follow-ups.
Inspiration for this idea came when I checked today to see if there are any follow-ups to Vincent Bugliosi's idea/book on prosecuting George W Bush for murder and I realized there is no mechanic to help me follow this story - but there should be!
