Starred articles

Recently, I was thinking about the possibility to 'star' a article you like on The Verge. I suggest it as a feature that at least I would use.

How could this be implemented? A button on each article that you can click to bookmark it, and in your profile a list of all your starred articles. This would be, in my opinion, a great way to personalise your profile even more. Sometimes when I read an article, I think: "This is interesting, but I don't want to completely forget about it". I think it would be nice to have a way to get an overview of the things that you find intriguing.

Yes, there are other ways to do this. Google Reader has an option for this, and is not limited to one news-source. I bet many other similar services offer this option too. You could also bookmark a page in your browser. Still, to me it seems like a good idea.

I am curious to hear what other people think about this. Maybe it is unnecessary, maybe not. Let me hear.
