Medium: Because Sharing Ideas and Experiences Moves Humanity Forward

Posted on Monday, February 25th, 2013 by

Medium is Evan William’s new interpretation of how people should share ideas online, and with Blogger and Twitter on his resume, I guess he knows what he is talking about.

Do you have Interesting Thoughts?

Medium is a new publishing platform for long-form content. With one click, what you’re writing becomes what everyone’s reading—but only if it’s worthwhile, since public engagement pushes posts to the top. Individuals can help, too, providing comments via margin notes and inspiration in the first place with themed collections. Quality begets quality: On Medium, the best ideas are allowed to emerge, no matter where they come from. The site is based on the belief that the sharing of ideas and experiences is what moves humanity forward.

See only the good posts!

Posting on Medium (which is not yet open to everyone…) is elegant and easy, and you can do so without the burden of becoming a “blogger” or worrying about the arduous task of developing an audience. All posts are organized into “collections,” which are defined by a theme. Eventually, anyone will be able to create a collection about anything, and collections can be invite only or open to contributions from anyone. Collections give people context and structure to articulate their ideas. You can recommend content to others, giving feedback to the creator and by that  increase the likelihood others will see it. All in all its a refreshing new way to share ideas online and made by a person who knows his job, get a glance at it’s beta here and when it will get out of it, post some ideas.
