We come across a lot of interesting ideas and innovative solutions, but we choose only a few to discuss in detail. The best of the stories we don't cover get selected and collated as headlines in News and Views. It's like a little Worldchanging news service, and if you haven't noticed, the daily News and Views stories are now being delivered via RSS feed either with the other posts, or as a feed by themselves.
