Ev Williams Makes sense.
For all their nonsense with naming things and attempted tampering with human sentiments on long form reading and writing, the one shiny thing about Medium is how deftly they have created a bazaar for long form writing and for everyone in the world! For you and me, the bloody plebs of this world!
That, mixed with a vetting process and curation of best stuff and a subscription model may just be what the revolution needs. I am happy to bet my money on this, no matter which publication leaves the boat.
Lately, I am a little nervous here with the way Medium is going maverick breaking sensible things and spurring gamification and sport where none exists really.
Hang on there. There must be a method to this madness. We can wait.
Are you listening to your readers, Medium Staff?
