Medium

Many have asked me what I think about Medium.com and yes, I think it’s a nice visual layout but I feel that Medium is mostly another demonstration of the need to get away from the Web (which is very much focused on graphics and not content) and use the internet to share native documents. For example, if you are in Word or Author and there is a link to another Word or Author document it should open in that app, not on the web or anywhere else.

I was reminded of this today when I read this article on the company’s trouble:
