I have been watching how Medium grew and developed over the last several years. Undoubtedly this respect and conscious orientation towards “multiple perspectives and ideas” is _the_ driving force of Medium.

Just look at the number of posts every time Medium changes the logo, or the layout, hearts to claps.

The notion of “multiple ideas and perspectives” is so deeply integrated in Medium that I often feel that Medium is mine, I have a stake in it; an illusion, I know.
