Medium’s new plan of paying publications is a game changer

Not only this. Once you get to see that you get compensated for your writing, and that Medium pays you for writing that attracts “claps” or accolades for your writing, it will change _you_, the writer, the author, to produce better quality stuff.

This will set up a virtuous cycle of great writing on the Medium.

I am sure at some point, Medium will rethink their “clap”/applause policy, but the elements of a game changing, paradigm shifting web app has arrived in the form of Medium.
