Medium and New Publishing Platforms

Medium is a new publishing platform that has been getting a lot of buzz lately. I signed up a while back, but like most have been waiting for it to open up to a wider user base. It’s really compelling. It’s one of those services that has really thought about the way people consume content and has figured out how to make content and reading compelling. One of Medium’s unique features is its reading time estimate. It tells about how long every read is whether its 2 to 5 or more minutes. It’s one of those things that is so great to include and yet, simple. I’ve never been a big fan of Twitter, but there is something to be said for quickly consumable publishing platforms. Most people don’t read in depth articles everyday. Most people don’t have the time so we need services like Medium in order to for people to make the kind of content that people consume in the digital age.
