I'm not sure what you mean by a more social solution. UWN is edited on a

 I don't mean social as in collaborative, I'm sorry for the confusion.  I
meant social as in allowing for user feedback and discussion.

I think this is more an argument to rethink The Fridge, than to ditch

 I would support this, if we were allowed to post editorial style posts
concerning the news.

UWN, however it's delivered, can still have a place, I think. Some

I'm sure creating a weekly digest of posts from the fridge would hardly be

Anyone who shows the ability to write a decent article should be allowed to
write for the fridge.  If need be posts to the fridge could require
moderation from a specific group before they were allowed to go public.
This would ensure "quality control".  Anyone who maintains a decent blog is
probably a good candidate for writing for the fridge in this fashion.
